WordPress New Version 3.0 'Thelonious'

WordPress has released the latest edition of its open source publishing platform - WordPress 3.0, dubbed Thelonious.

The new release aims to consolidate the task of managing multiple blogs, and streamline the user interface for site administrators.

We like Wordpress at Big Bang Business. If you want a simple website that’s easy to look after, Wordpress is brilliant.

Among the new features in Wordpress 3.0 is improving the interfaces to enable the management of multiple publications through a single installation.

The Wordpress 3.0 update also enables users to update and manage multiple plug-ins and themes at once through a single screen.

A new theme dubbed Twenty Ten will become the default on new blogs, and will offer support for new features such as custom menus and improved typography.

WordPress founder and developer Matt Mullenweg said that the Thelonious update contains 1,217 bug fixes and feature enhancements, and involved 218 collaborators.
The company will now take a release cycle off to analyse and tune the current platform, rather than immediately develop another update.

"So much of our effort has been focused on the core software it hasn't left much time for anything else," said Mullenweg in a blog post.

"Over the next three months we're going to split into ninja/pirate teams focused on different areas of the around-WordPress experience."
