Filosofos patch has been committed and after some skimmed reviews, it is looking pretty good. He still needs to fix a few bugs that are known before everyone gets a hold of the menu system. Hopefully, we’ll be able to play around with the menu system come Monday in Beta 2.
Ryan Boren stated that 3.0 is live on a subset of wordpress.com servers. They fixed a bunch of bugs in the process, all of which are now in WP trunk. A couple of the VIP members for WordPress.com tested the code with their plugins which also highlighted some bugs that were fixed and are also in trunk. A lot of what needs to happen are bug fixes with Menus being the only feature demanding attention right now. Nacin mentioned the following areas that need fixing: post type bugs, some taxonomy bugs, mainly needing final patches… some MS bugs and general incompleteness — i.e. non-broken IIS support — needing some love.
It looks like Monday April 26th will be the day WordPress 3.0 Beta 2 will be pushed out.
WordCamp San Francisco Code Sprint
Anyone who is staying in town on Monday or Tuesday after WordCamp San Francisco will be about to work at the Pier where Automattic is located to work on WordPress 3.0 bugs.

Nice, it sounded like the menus had actually been pulled from 3.0 and delayed or pushed into a temporary plugin according to some of the commentary on the dev blog, but maybe there’s hope after all. Great to hear.
