WordPress team has released the WordPress 3.0 RC3. After 2 betas and 2 RCs, this probably is the final RC before the stable version release of WordPress 3.0. We were expecting WordPress 3.0 in the month of May but we hope that the final version will come in this month. WordPress team doesn’t want any issues like WordPress 2.9 release after the stable version release of WordPress 3.0 and that’s why they are releasing lot many betas and RCs.
Here is the RC3 release note on WordPress development blog,
A weekend present, in haiku:
Last call; final bugs
Itch, scratch, contort; calmly wait
For now: RC3
That’s right. What will hopefully be the final release candidate, RC3, is now available for download and testing.
Plugin developers: test your plugins!
As WordPress is hopeful that this is the final release candidate before 3.0 final release. So you can expect WordPress 3.0 final stable release in a week or two. There are lot many features in WordPress 3.0 like MU Merge and Menu navigation. Checkout the features and first look of WordPress 3.0.
