Trying out WordPress 3.0 Beta 1

Just installed WordPress 3.0 Beta 1 this evening. WordPress 3.0 Beta 1 was announced last week. Usually its unwise to use beta software to power your blog but I figured I’d live a little dangerously.

In WordPress 3.0, they are introducing a brand new default theme called “Twenty Ten” which offers several customization features. I’m trying the new theme out right now. So far I really like it. I’m going to test out the theme’s new customization features over the weekend. I think investing less time in trying to develop my own theme from scratch and perhaps doing some actual blogging might be beneficial.

    It’s a wonderful new theme Brandon that is also accessable to us who use WordPress.com. However, I can’t get Windows Live Writer to sync with it properly AND I can’t place my photos to the left or right and therefore do text wrapping or I would definately have chosen this one because it let’s you choose your own background AND header as well.
    Writer does tend to have problems with some WordPress themes.
