WordPress 3 Matures Into Content Management

WordPress is one of the most popular blogging platforms out there, thanks in no small part to being open source. Up to now, it's been largely confined to just supporting blogging, but with version 3, the numerous volunteers who help develop WordPress have added features like content management and multi-site support. They also stomped on more than 1,200 bugs in the process, according to the article on Datamation.

Wordpress, one of the most popular blogging applications, is out this week with a major update. Wordpress 3.0 includes 1,217 bug fixes and a long list of new features developed with the efforts of 218 contributors.

WordPress is available as an open source download that anyone can setup and install on their own server as well as on a hosted platform at WordPress.com. According to Google (NASDAQ: GOOG), WordPress.com is the 12th most visited site in the world, with 120 million unique visitors in April.
