WordPress 3.1 Released

Finally after a long long wait, WordPress 3.1 Codename “Reinhardt” is out. [Named after the musician Django¬†Reinhardt]

This new release packs in it lots of new features like Global WP.com style Admin bar, Internal Linking, Post Formats, new Network Admin Dashboard, Archive pages for custom post types, Advanced Custom taxonomy queries, a new Admin Color Scheme and a less cluttered posting interface which hides some of the less used metaboxes by default.

You can download it to update manually or update it from your dashboard. WordPress has promised that 3.2’s release cycle would be shorter and would have some fun improvements related to plugins.
