WordPress 3.0 is now out.

Here are a few of my favorite features:

  • WordPress and WordPress MU have merged, allowing the management of multiple sites (called Multisite) from one WordPress installation.
  • You can now create custom menu’s so that is REALLY easy to change your menu’s on your site. You can add categories, tags and even posts to your site.
  • Changing your header and background is now built into the Admin area.
  • When you install WordPress, you can now use your own username and password (thank you, thank you)
  • Improved Custom post types and custom taxonomies. This allows me to create a “video” post type with custom fields to post to a video site.

You can download WordPress 3.0 at WordPress.org.
