WordPress 3.1 is released

WordPress 3.1 has been released and is named Reinhardt after legendary jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt. Some of the notable new features include:

  1. New Site Admin bar – a new admin bar has been added to the logged in live view, enabling quick editing of posts / pages
  2. Post formats – now able to tag post format and subsequently display individual post formats eg. gallery post, aside, features
  3. Multi-taxonimy queries – essentially an improved searching mechanism, more power to developers 🙂
  4. Network Admin User – superseeds multi-site WordPress “Super Admin” user
  5. In-site post linking – adds the facility to search and add links for internal blog posts / pages – big UI win!

This update certainly moves WordPress on from a simple blogging engine to a fully fledged CMS. Go download the latest update NOW! In honour of the release here’s Django at his best:
