It looks a lot like WordPress 2.9.2, but from what the emails and blog posts are saying, it’s faster, more secure, easier, and more powerful. My theme worked just fine, and it seems that all my plugins work just fine too. I did change my theme to the default theme. We’ll see how that lasts.
I was a little concerned at how long it would take me. A few iterations ago there was an update that required a lot of finagling and admin-like tasks. Since it was a full point upgrade (2.x to 3.x), I was expecting the same. But, it was as easy as the last minor upgrade (2.9.1 to 2.9.2). It downloaded and upgraded within 10 seconds. That’s what I call service!
I’m looking forward to poking around to see what WordPress 3.0 has to offer. If I find anything particularly interesting, I’ll post.
