What’s In Store With WP 3.0

WPBeginner has a great writeup of what we can look forward to in WordPress 3.0. Of course there is the merge of WordPress MU into WordPress, the awesome Woo Navigation menus, a new default theme, and custom post types just to name a few. WordPress 3.0 has a tentative release date in early May but that could be pushed back if any major breakage occurs during the beta cycle.

Now you’ll have to tell me what is it your most looking forward to in this version of WordPress. For me, it’s the new navigational menu system.

  1. For me personally I would like the admin section to be a little easier, there is nothing wrong with it as such but it can be a little clunky at the best of times.

    Merging MU into WordPress is a masterstroke in fairness, as it gives bloggers the ability to build a real community of people working together. Rather than your standard leave a comment and such like it will give the end user/visitor a real sense of contribution to a blog they love.

    I cannot wait for 3.0, but then I am sad.

  2. Multi-Site integration.

    Hands down. That made my life so my easier that as soon as a workable beta was available, I jumped on it.

    It took me a couple days to iron out all the kinks of my highly customized WP installs into a working WP-Multisite version, but I am a happy camper.

  4. Custom post types no question. I needed them for a project I started a few months ago but have since abandoned since the solution I used wasn’t all that right for the job. I use WordPress as a CMS so often it will be perfect.

    Just FYI, the MU codebase merge into WP won’t change a thing for all the self-hosted WordPress (i.e. single-site) blogs already up and running (or yet-to-be-installed sites, either). Most self-hosted WordPress installs do not have a powerful enough server to run multi-site, as most are on shared-server environments.

    The only real change is that current WordPressMU users will, after 3.0 releases, be using WordPress (with “MultiSite” enabled in wp-config) instead of WordPressMU.

    The rest of us won’t notice any change.
