WDMAC running on WordPress 3.3 “Sonny” Published on December 13, 2011
With a bunch of new features this latest version of WordPress brings a whole new set of choices both to users and developers, this being said:
Experienced users will appreciate the new drag-and-drop uploader, hover menus for the navigation, the new toolbar, improved co-editing support, and the new Tumblr importer. We’ve also been thinking a ton about what the WordPress experience is like for people completely new to the software. Version 3.3 has significant improvements there with pointer tips for new features included in each update, a friendly welcome message for first-time users, and revamped help tabs throughout the interface. Finally we’ve improved the dashboard experience on the iPad and other tablets with better touch support.
There is a ton of candy for developers as well. I’d recommend starting your exploration with the new editor API, new jQuery version, better ways to hook into the help screens, more performant post-slug-only permalinks, and of course the entire list of improvements on the Codex and in Trac.

WDMAC running on WordPress 3.2 Published on July 7, 2011
The update was smooth with some minor exceptions:
- Some old plug-ins failed and originated fatal errors that caused a temporary break-down on the website.
I accessed the server via FTP and renamed the faulty plugin’s folder. Now everything is running smoothly.
The new interface looks good, the fonts are anti-aliased. The new full-screen posting interface is also cool. I still need to explore the rest of the good stuff.

Guided Transfer Upgrade
According to Automattic’s founder Matt Mullenweg, “If you’re on WordPress you’re part of the family, it shouldn’t matter if we host you or not.”
With Jetpack, a new plugin from Automattic, people not on WordPress.com can now access features that depend on WordPress.com. Jetpack also provides convenience features that don’t use the cloud, but are now easier to install, or were unavailable as plugins before.
wordpress.com has launched a new upgrade called Guided Transfer where for a $99 one-time fee they’ll handle every detail and tech thingamajig involved in moving your content, theme, domain, and more to any one of the recommended hosts they’ve vetted. (And of course your new site will be Jetpack-powered.)
Quoting “Hew” from wordpress.com: “- Of course we love having you here with us at WordPress.com, but we understand that there are situations where a self-hosted WordPress.org site may be a better choice”
WordPress does rock!

WordPress 3.0 Release Candidate Published on June 2, 2010
As Matt teased earlier, the first release candidate (RC1) for WordPress 3.0 is now available. What’s an RC? An RC comes after beta and before the final launch. It means we think we’ve got everything done: all features finished, all bugs squashed, and all potential issues addressed. But, then, with over 20 million people using WordPress with a wide variety of configurations and hosting setups, it’s entirely possible that we’ve missed something. So! For the brave of heart, please download the RC and test it out (but not on your live site unless you’re extra adventurous). Some things to know:
