The release of WordPress 3.0 has made this an exciting week for the WordPress community. We’ve been working with the Beta and RC’s for the past few months and we love it!
One of the things I really like about open source projects is the recognition individuals get for their contributions. I think it’s great to see all of the Committers to WordPress 3.0 get called out on the WordPress Blog.
If you’re running the WordPress on SQL Server patch from this site, you may be wondering why you don’t see an option to upgrade to 3.0 in your WordPress Admin. Anthony Gentile from OmniTI wrote this article explaining how the upgrade process works when you’re running the WordPress on SQL Server patch.
The team is heads down working on some really cool stuff, including Selenium Tests, 3.0 Support and a PDO Translation Layer. We want to get the Selenium Tests done and run the PDO Translation Layer and 3.0 Support through these tests before triggering upgrades for people running WordPress on SQL Server or SQL Azure.
Expect to see these goodies rolling out over the next few weeks.
