WordPress 3.0 is out, finally. No doubt, many good things under the hood. I particularly like that multiuser is now available. For once, the default theme is not visually embarrassing, although no doubt that will change once we've seen Twenty Ten a hundred times on splogs.
One bad thing, people's expectations that WordPress 3.0 is:
- bug free
- compatible with current plugins
No way guys. There's no way that most popular plugins are ready for 3.0. So unless you are willing to go on a severe plugin and functionality diet, just forget about WordPress 3.0 for a couple of months.
It's the same deal when Apple releases a new version of their OS (back in classic days or with OS X). You don't want 10.6.0 or 10.6.1 or even 10.6.2. Applications don't work and are incompatible. The sweet spot to move is the .4 or the .5 iteration.
