Now, the thirteenth major edition of WordPress is released for you. It has been brought up by 218 contributors to give you free. You may also upgrade within dashboard. It has come out with a new feature called Twenty Tem. It is a new default theme especially designed for the WordPress 3.0. The Theme Developers have new APIs that let you easily implement custom background, headers, shortlinks, menus (no more file editing), post types, and taxonomies. In this version, the long awaited merger of MU and WordPress, creating the new multi-site functionality, which makes it possible to run one blog or ten million from the same installation, have come true. Moreover, it has come out with the lighter interface, the contextual help on every screen, the 1,217 bug fixes and feature enhancements, bulk updates so you can upgrade 15 plugins at once with a single click, and blah blah blah just watch the video.
Really, WordPress feels happy, as there were 10.3 million downloads of version 2.9. Besides, WordPress team says, “we’re going to split into ninja/pirate teams focused on different areas of the around-WordPress experience, including the showcase, Codex, forums, profiles, update and compatibility APIs, theme directory, plugin directory, mailing lists, core plugins, wordcamp.org… the possibilities are endless”.
