Web Dev Blog now running on WordPress 3.0

Posted on Monday, July 5th, 2010 by Jamie

WordPress 3.0 “Thelonious”, the thirteenth major release of WordPress was released to the general public on the 17th June, 2010. After successfully testing our most commonly used plugins on our development/test blog we have decided to upgrade our own blog and will slowly work our way through our clients blogs.

Hats off to WordPress 3.0 as this upgrade has been a dream, not one of the plugins tested (so far) has been incompatible with WordPress 3.0 and as usual the automatic upgrade function ran smoothly.

WordPress 3.0 boasts “1,217 bug fixes and feature enhancements”, personally I didnt find it very buggy to begin with and I am still getting to know some of its standard features. However there are a few major additions that should prove to be very useful, especially when using WordPress as a Content Management System. The most notable of these being ‘Custom Menus’, ‘Header and Background API’s', ‘Custom post types’ and the ‘WordPress MU (Multisites)’.

We havent yet had the chance to build a blog or site from scratch using WordPress 3.0 (and I imagine not many people have yet) and so these features have yet to be thoroughly tested, but its looking good none-the-less. If you would like to read more about WordPress 3.0, take a look at the WordPress Blog.
