WordPress releases Thelonius (WordPress 3.0)

TAPACOM clients currently on the WordPress system should begin upgrading their websites with the latest version, called Thelonius. The latest incarnation of WordPress includes many new features that will increase the functionality of your web sites.

Those clients who are familiar with the upgrade process may perform the upgrade themselves. Download the files from the link at the bottom of this message and install via FTP (file transfer protocol). You will not be able to do the upgrade through the Dashboard. As usual, make sure you have backed up your files and test all functions after the upgrade.

Those clients who are not familiar with the process may schedule time when I will do the upgrade for you. Call me at 808-550-8554 or send me email at: http://www.tapacom.net/contact/

WordPress 3.0 is the thirteenth major release of WordPress and the culmination of half a year of work by 218 contributors, is now available for download.

New features in this release include a new default theme called Twenty Ten. Developers have new APIs that allow easy implementation of custom backgrounds, headers, shortlinks, menus (no more file editing), post types, and taxonomies. The Twenty Ten theme uses all these new features.

Developers and network administrators will appreciate the long-awaited merge of MU and WordPress, creating the new multi-site functionality which makes it possible to run one blog or ten million from the same installation. You will love the new lighter interface, the contextual help on every screen, the 1,217 bug fixes and feature enhancements, bulk updates so you can upgrade 15 plugins at once with a single click
