WordPress 3.1 was finally released under the codename “Reinhardt” named in honor of the jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt. So for those planning to start their blog for WordPress, you can download it at WordPress site. If you’re upgrading your WordPress site, just click the instant upgrade button located in your admin page. If needed, just backup your old configurations and WordPress using the tools available.
Here’s what TechieDan found out about this new version. It looks like WordPress 3.1 is more of a code cleanup and certain plugins upgraded(JQuery, TinyMCE updated) in order to make WordPress runs faster. Some of the notable ones is Internal linking when clicking the hyperlink button.
Strange for previous wordpress users. Though now click the Or link to existing content and it will show the few previous posts for internal linking.
Now instead of Copy and Paste and looking for your previous post using the Post area, you can now do it all in the Create/Edit Post area.
Slowly we will see more updates and upgrades for WordPress in terms of performance issue. Expect more updates to come in the upcoming weeks.
