Fun with WordPress 3.1
For all you WordPress fanatics out there, 3.1 is here. According to the official blog post, the 14th version of the leading blogging platform is called “Reinhardt”, named in honor of the jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt.
Version 3.1 is available for download or blog admins can update from within their dashboard.
According to the WordPress blog post on the release, this version is redesign links workflow, making it easier to link to existing posts and pages; adds an admin bar so users are never more than a click away from the most-used dashboard pages; a streamlined writing interface that hides many of the seldom-used panels by default to create a simpler and less intimidating writing experience for new bloggers (visit Screen Options in the top right to get old panels back); and, a refreshed blue admin scheme available for selection under your personal options.
There's also some enhancements for developers, including new Post Formats, which makes it easy for themes to create portable tumblelogs with different styling for different types of posts; new CMS capabilities like archive pages for custom content types; a new Network Admin; an overhaul of the import and export system; and, the ability to perform advanced taxonomy and custom fields queries.
