WordPress 3.0 is available
Quote:WordPress 3.0 is now available for public. This is the thirteenth major release of WordPress. The new version of WordPress includes new default theme called Twenty Ten, new APIs that allow them to easily implement custom backgrounds, headers, short links, menus without file editing, post types, and taxonomies. Bulk updates features allow users to upgrade 15 plugins at once, at the time of bulk plugin update; it goes to automatic maintenance mode.

Highlights of WordPress 3.0:

* WordPress and WordPress MU have merged, allowing the management of multiple sites (called Multisite) from one WordPress installation.
* New default theme “Twenty Ten” takes full advantage of the current features of WordPress.
* New custom menu management feature, allows creation of custom menus combining posts, pages, categories, tags, and links for use in theme menus or widgets.
* Custom header and background APIs.
* Contextual help text accessed under the Help tab of every screen in the WordPress administration.
* Ability to set the admin username and password during installation.
* Bulk updating of themes with an automatic maintenance mode during the process.
* Support for shortlinks.
* Improved Custom post types and custom taxonomies including hierarchical (category-style) support. (Try the Custom Post Type UI or GD Custom Posts And Taxonomies Tools plugins to see the possibilities.)
* A lighter admin color scheme to increase accessibility and put the focus more squarely on your content.
