WordPress 3.0 Release Candidate

WordPress is aiming for a June release of the 3.0 version of there popular blogging software. So far they are right on track, they just released the first RC of the 3.0 platform, whats an RC? The term release candidate (RC) refers to a version with potential to be a final product, ready to release unless fatal bugs emerge. In this stage of product stabilization, all product features have been designed, coded and tested through one or more beta cycles with no known showstopper-class bug.

If your a WordPress developer or even just a WordPress blogger and want to get a peak at the new version you can head over to WordPress.org and download the new RC, DO NOT install this on your live blog, remember its only a candidate for the new version, further testing still needs to be done to ensure all bugs have been discovered and removed.

If your curious whats been changed heres a quick list.

  • Custom menus.
  • Multi-site. (run multiple blog’s off a single install)
  • The look of the WordPress admin has been lightened up a little bit, so you can focus more on your content.
  • There are a ton of changes, so plugin authors, please test your plugins now, so that if there is a compatibility issue, we can figure it out before the final release.
  • Plugin and theme *users* are also encouraged to test things out. If you find problems, let your plugin/theme authors know so they can figure out the cause.
  • There are a couple of known issues.

If you do decide to give RC1 a test spin and come across any bugs please help WordPress out.
