After the WP development team spent the Summer on improving the WP community’s infrastructure, they are back with WordPress 3.1, now in beta 1, the next version of this year’s Open Source CMS „Hall of Fame“-Award winning CMS. New features include improved internal linking, standard post formats, query improvements and a couple of other administration related improvements (like ajaxified sorting of columns). They recently published the first beta – check out the official post for some more information.
