It’s official – and waiting in your WP dashboard…
WordPress 3.0 is live and rarin’ to go!
If you’ve been a bit out of the loop, here’s a post I wrote about some of the cool new stuff coming in 3.0.
And of course you’ll want to be ready for it – so make sure you take a look at the tips I gave for preparing for the transition. Specifically I recommended using a plugin that helps with the backup process, so you won’t lose any valuable info if things go a wee bit kaflooey.
You’ll probably want to take a look at the official release announcement for a thorough understanding. There is a video from Matt Mullenweg giving a “State of the Word” address, so you can understand where this release fits into the history. You might think that would be too geeky, but truthfully it is really fascinating, particularly given this is all done via open source, with volunteers. Pretty impressive.
And if you’re impressed, and grateful, that you get to use such impressive and constantly improving software for free, consider a donation to the WordPress Foundation.
Here’s a video that demonstrates the newest features and functions of WordPress 3.0. If you have any questions, please let me know.
Oh, and if you are using the themes I recommend, from iThemes, or any of their plugins, you are good to go for 3.0.
