After releasing the RC 3 and RC 4 versions of the next big update to WordPress, the WordPress Team has released the final stable version of the WordPress 3.1 “Reinhardt.”
The long-awaited fourteenth release of WordPress is now available to download and install on your blog. WordPress 3.1 is named as â€œReinhardtâ€ in honor of the jazz guitaristÂ Django Reinhardt.
An excerpt from the official announcement from the wordpress team:
This release features a lightning fast redesigned linking workflow which makes it easy to link to your existing posts and pages, an admin bar so youâ€™re never more than a click away from your 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.
All together, this release fixesÂ more than 820 issues.
There are a lot of new and exciting features which have been added to this major WordPress 3.1 release.Â WordPress is more of a CMS than ever before. The only limit to what you can build is your imagination. So, upgrade your blog now if you have not already done so.
