After so many beta versions and release candidates, WordPress 3.0 finally released.
The WordPress 3.0 version has the codename “Thelonious”. The previous version of WordPress is WordPress 2.9.2.
Some Features of WordPress 3.0 :
- WordPress MU : Allows users create multiple blogs from a single WordPress installation.
- Lighter Admin Interface: Introduces a new administration interface designed to be lighter and to reduce distractions.
- Security : WordPress has improved its security features to protect blogs against threats.
- Shortlink Support : WordPress now has built-in support for URL shorteners.
Post excerpt from WordPress Blog,
WordPress 3.0, the thirteenth major release of WordPress and the culmination of half a year of work by 218 contributors, is now available for download (or upgrade within your dashboard). Major new features in this release include a sexy new default theme called Twenty Ten. Theme developers have new APIs that allow them to easily implement custom backgrounds, headers, shortlinks, menus (no more file editing), post types, and taxonomies. (Twenty Ten theme shows all of that off.) Developers and network admins will appreciate the long-awaited merge 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. As a user, you will love the new 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.
Please don’t wait! Upgrade it asap possible in order to improve and protect your blog! You can upgrade WordPress version directly by using the link available in the dashboard.

WordPress MU is not release yet, I think it is going to be in the future release of version 3.0
Won’t be upgrading this time! Heard of a lot of theme issues with WP 3.0.
Well, I can always wait for a better stable version 🙂
Really? Are you having problems with theme? Then you have two choices. Wait for next WP version or next Theme version.. 😀
😀 Missed the third one — Don’t use wordpress 😀
Actually WP 3.0 didn’t amuse me– or anyone else I believe. I loved the dark grey layout in earlier versions.. 🙁
I already upgraded my tech blog.It has some nice features specially custom menu management.
I updated my blog to latest wordpress 3.0 version and first thing which I noticed is change in the dashboard layout.
After that I activated the network settings to let my blog behave like MU.
So far I have not seen any known issue apart from Google Xml sitemap plugin showing error when I enabled multi-site option.
I’m waiting to see a quick update for Google Xml sitemap plugin, so that it can work without any issue with multi-site,or else any better alternate plugin.
Some dont like it.
I upgraded! 🙂

I’m surprised by with the mixed response. Since I’m using thesis ill wait till the bugs clear off.
Cant afford to risk my theme and blog 🙂
I would prefer using the same older version, i haven’t used it yet but as per my friends personal experience, i said this. Rest you guys better knows the working. 🙂
Its out and now rat fight is going on to find the Bugs with this release 😉
I think there is one. Came to know there is a problem in opening Custom_functions.php (Thesis Theme) file.. 😀
I read in some of the blogs, that around 4-5 wp blogs were hacked after Upgrading 🙁 Its better to backup b4 upgrading
I used a plugin for upgrading, so had no issues! 🙂
WordPress 3.1 resolved the issues

Hi Pradeep, Have you upgraded yet? I keep hearing that the transition is so smooth and I haven’t seen anyone having problems yet. It’s great to see this version finally arrive.
Yeah Ileane! I upgraded it successfully! Thanks to WordPress Automatic Upgrade plugin! I did see any issues here, but the Admin Color Scheme is not appealing.. !
waiting for this version 🙂 so that i can update:)
