WordPress 3.0 Officially Released

I guess yesterday was a good time to switch themes as it was my plan to do that on the release date. Today WordPress 3.0 is final and officially out. You can download it from the wordpress.org main site I just upgraded from RC3 with the auto upgrade feature and it was just a matter of seconds, so now all my sites are running one install of 3.0.

It was exactly 2 years ago in March that I made the switch to WordPress and it is still my favorite blogging software. It looks like I began on version 2.3 back then. I try to stay on top of all the updates and so far I haven’t had any problems via an exploit like what happened with PHPNUKE However, that did make me learn my lesson and now I have a nightly backup of my database in place.

This video tour was just posted on the wordpress blog showing some of the new features.
