WordPress 3.1 is out, and I’ve just upgraded a few of my sites (including this one). A few observations spring to mind immediately:
- Installation was, of course, a breeze
- The new admin bar is great. What would make it awesome is if developers (i.e. me) can add item to it: links to plugins, sparklines etc…
- Network admin has been sensibly moved to a separate place than the standard admin sytem. Can we add items to the network admin menu? I guess so. I also hope that network (or WPMU) plugins will continue to work.
- Not tried the new internal linking feature as I always use the raw HTML editor, but as I’ve been writing something similar for my day job recently I can imagine how it work
I’m looking forward to testing my plugins with 3.1, and writing some great new ones.
