The moment we WordPress users have been waiting for has finally come — the release of WordPress 3.0 codenamed Thelonious. Deuts.NET is of course already upgraded to the latest version.
Watch this video to know more about the new features of WordPress 3.0.

So far, the list of new great features we’re most excited about and would love to employ in this blog (and other blog projects as well) are:
- A new default theme, called Twenty-Ten, paves the way to be an example on how to take advantage of the new features;
- Custom background support lets you easily enable your heavily customized theme to support custom backgrounds and custom headers. Moreover, you can assign further custom headers for each post;
- Multi-site Capabilities and WPMU Codebase Merge is probably is the main feature of this new release. I hope to turn this blog into a multi-site one and utilizing the domain mapping plugin would probably consolidate my other projects into one big Deuts Network site;
- Custom Post Types reduces the need to fiddle around with custom fields. This brings WordPress to be much more of a CMS.
Some other features are, well, add to the bloat. We’ll just continue to wish for the development team to develop a WordPress Core only and that other features can be easily turned on or off.
