So, today, June 17, 2010, you probably logged into your WordPress site and saw the notification:
WordPress 3.0 “Thelonious” is here! Now you can have a single site and use BuddyPress or use multi-installations of WordPress on one install. For some, this is epic. Now WordPress is one entity instead of split into WordPress and WordPress Mu. This does something awesome – makes it convenient and easy to install a social community like BuddyPress.
For me, I have been excited about this project since hearing about it the first time. (Your fault Matt and my fave core developers – making me wait all that time for it…lol…jk.) I tested it on my own development site, and I know some have even been comfortable to exercise the release candidates for 3.0 on their live sites.
WordPress really has come a long way. Some of the videos I have seen from the most recent WordCamps, on top of the ones I sat in at WordCamp Chicago highlighted some of the versions. Brings back some memories. 🙂
So, if it is okay with everyone who reads WPAddict… I am going to send a big shout out Thank you to everyone who contributed to making WordPress 3.0 happen. All those countless hours are much appreciated.
