The thirteenth major release of WordPress.org (I pay for hosting) is out now. The beta versions of WordPress 3.0 has been out for a while now but the guys at WordPress.org have now fixed all known bugs and released the final Version of WordPress 3.0 . You can upgrade to 3.0 right from you Dashboard or new users can download it from here

Some new notable features :

  • 1.217 bug fixes and feature enhancements.
  • New default theme Twenty Ten.
  • Theme developers now have new APIs which allow them to easily implement custom backgrounds, headers, menus(no more file editing), shortlinks, post types and taxonomies.
  • WordPress and WordPress MU have been merged so you can now make a community of blogs or a single blog with just one installation, no more hassles or installing the other.
  • Lighter interface with contextual help on every screen.
  • Ability to set the admin username and password during installation.
  • Support for shortlinks.
  • Allow “No role for this blog” to be chosen in Users->Add New panel (why would anyone need this?)

For a more comprehensive look at everything that has improved and features that have been added in WordPress 3.0  you can check out WordPress 3.0’s Codex page or the long list of issues in Trac.

This three minute video explains each and every feature. [Watch in HD if you can, there are Easter eggs (I’m not sure, haven’t seen any)]

PS: I have no idea why I wrote this post when I don’t give a damn about WordPress 3.0 . I want it but can’t afford hosting (at least not now).
