WordPress 3.0 "Thelonious" Released

Wordpress 3.0

This week, the good folks at released the 13th iteration of their amazing open-source content management software entitled version 3.0: Thelonious.

Named after jazz legend Thelonious Monk, this version of WordPress comes with a number of neat new features beneficial to both overall organization and to customizable development.

A brief list of features I’m really excited about:

  • New User Customizable Menu items (still needs work, but a great idea)
  • Ability to associate an image thumbnail with a post or page (previously I had to write a hack in the theme to get this to work right). Users can even use existing images in their library.
  • Ability to define background and header images so users can pick from a library of possibilities
  • Developers now have the ability to create custom content types apart from the standard “page” or “post” common to existing WordPress versions. (Ex: I have a radio client who has content for their own business and separate content for radio shows. Now they can manage those entries in independent sections.)

In addition to the new features are the 1200+ updates and big fixes they’ve included in this update.

With great new features for both users and developers, WordPress continues to be my favourite framework for building classy, extensible websites that are mega-easy to use and update!
