WordPress 3.0 was released yesterday, with over 2,700 changes (including 1,217 bug fixes). This is the 13th major release of the software.
The most talked about feature is the new ability to run multiple blogs on the software. Previously, each blog on a site had to be run on a separate copy of WordPress. Administrators could run more than one blog only by using WordPress MU – an entirely different version of WordPress.
Version 3.0 seems to be all about customization and flexibility. File editing is now right in the Dashboard and the version comes with custom menu sets, custom post types and a custom taxonomy structure.
Here’s WordPress’ video describing the changes:
WordPress 3.0 can be downloaded from within the dashboard or through wordpress.com. Have you already downloaded it?
