WordPress 3.1 Beta 1 is available for testing

If you are a developer or a WordPress geek, the you might be interested in downloading WordPress 3.1 beta 1 version. This version is expected to have bugs and is being made available only for testing purposes. Hence, do not upgrade to 3.1 beta 1 on a live site. Try it out on a test server.

WordPress 3.1 Beta 1

  • Some of the changes to watch out with WordPress 3.1 Beta 1 will be to Post Formats, Theme Search, Admin Bar and much more. See complete list here.
  • As I mentioned in this post earlier, this is meant only for testing and not to be used with a live website. Once bugs are found and fixed the version will update overnight.
  • If you have found a bug or any issue with the new feature you can bring it up at their alpha/beta forum.
  • WordPress 3.1 Beta 1 does not work with BuddyPress as yet. It should be fixed in time.

The final version of WordPress 3.1 should be out in a couple of months. It is slated to release by the end of this year or early next year.
