The long-awaited release of WordPress is now available. The new 3.1 release is pretty cool, it has a new admin bar so you’re never more than one-click from your admin and adding links in the WYSIWYG is now like 42x faster and includes a lookup to make it easy to link to your own posts and pages. We have just upgraded our customer’s WordPress blog and website to this version and it is indeed quite improved.
Here is the Feature highlights in version 3.1
- Redesigned linking workflow which makes it easy to link to your existing posts and pages.
- Admin bar on front of the blog ( Only visible to Admin User )so you’re never more than a click away from your most-used dashboard pages.

- New CMS capabilities like archive pages for custom content types.
- Overhaul of the import and export system
- Advanced taxonomy and custom fields queries
- This release fixes more than 820 issues.
