WordPress 3.0 Released

By admin, June 17th, 2010

We’re big fans of WordPress so today is a big day for us. After many months of hard word, the WordPress team released version 3.0 today of the open source CMS, code-named “Thelonious”.

Among the big new features:

  • WordPress and WordPressMU have merged, so it’s now possible to run multiple sites from one install
  • There’s a new default theme called Twenty Ten
  • Contextual help on all admin pages
  • Support for “shortlinks”
  • Lighter admin theme

For developers like us there a number of welcome additions including

  • Custom menu management
  • Custom header and background APIs
  • Auto-updating themes
  • Custom post types and custom taxonomies. This allows content types like real-estate listings to be easily added without hacks.

For a walkthrough of some of the new features, here’s a video:
