The final release of version 3.0 of WordPress was released on Thursday. With this program, which is made available under the gpl license, it is possible to set up and maintain a weblog. WordPress could be up and running in under five minutes if a server with PHP and MySQL is available. In addition to blogging, it is also possible to further expand the functionality of WordPress and improve the appearance through plugins and themes to adjust. In version 3.0, the WordPress and WordPress MU components have been merged, among other things, making it easier to manage different websites. In addition, a new theme, called twenty ten, custom menus can be created and custom post types and custom taxonomies have been improved. An extensive overview of the improvements is on this page to find. This is the announcement for version 3.0:

WordPress 3.0 “Thelonious”

Arm your vuvuzelas: WordPress 3.0, the thirteenth major release of WordPress and the culmination of half a year of work by 218 contributors, is now available for download (or upgrade within your dashboard). Major new features in this release include a sexy new default theme called Twenty Ten. Theme developers have new APIs that allow them to easily implement custom backgrounds, headers, shortlinks, menus (no more file editing), post types, and taxonomies. (Twenty Ten theme shows all of that off.) Developers and network admins 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. As a user, 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, and blah blah blah.
