WordPress 3.0 "Thelonious" Released

And doesn’t it look fantastic.

WordPress 3.0 has some features that have been in high demand for some time, and that theme developers have had to muddle their way around when using WordPress as a project’s CMS. Namely:

  • Custom backgrounds & headers (no more custom fields and php wizardry needed)
  • Shortlinks (our tweets thank you)
  • Menus (I can’t tell you how exited I am to retire the rather massive PHP function I use to do this now)
  • Custom Post types and taxonomies (more and more like Drupal, this is a good thing)


WP 3.0 also features the long-awaited merge of WPMU and WordPress, allowing any install to serve up the power for running one blog or a million. This feature alone is sure to jump WP into the toolbox of many developers who now are forced to use a more robust CMS to do the same thing.
