    ooh - the long-awaited merge of WP and WP-MU.

    I wonder how many of my precious plugins will break.

    All those old plugins that were compatible with 2.9 are more than likely going to break which means a lot of my autoblogs are gonna go down in the dumps. Maybe I wont update but bah you never going to know if you dont try. They always are updating security so there is no telling how much they will be updating it in the beginning of release.

    "What does this mean for you?
    You can now have multiple sites in one installation."

    Multiple sites = thousands of sleepy autoblog sites? :)

    Looks like good stuff, but honestly I worry that Wordpress is getting too bloated. Merging Mu into with standard Wp along with integrating new features (that used to require plugins) might make it more convenient for a power user - but for so many people it's getting complicated. I've switched to using Mu for all of my domains, hosting them off the same set of files (imagine the plight of the poor chap upgrading 70 installs), so I'm glad to see the integration but then again... now for simple sites there's more files, more code to parse and more bloat. It really pushes me towards writing a small CMS that does just what I want, since the "simplicity" factor of Wordpress is going the way of the dodo. It brings back memories of Joomla.

    I've learnt the hard way that it's best not to upgrade.

    So while everything's working and all the Plugins are happily working I'm going to leave well alone.

    There is a mistake. WP 3.0 relase date is not march 1st.

    Read that sentence again and you will notice that it will be released MAY 1st.

    whew! thanx! we got a bit of time before everything crashes and freezes.

    "Feature freeze is on March 1st, therefore this list will contain
    only major features that we are fairly certain will make into WordPress Version 3.0."
