I read this awesome news few minutes back regarding WordPress being in development for version 3.0.Recently 2.9.1 was made available to fix the bugs in the wordpress 2.9 version.After the beta 1 there would be a second stage of Beta 2 and then the WordPress 3.0 would be released.One important thing to note about WordPress 3.0 is that it would feature a merged version of WordPress MU(Multi User) and wordpress.
That means to say that in a single installation you can install wordpress MU and wordpress at the same time.This comes in handy when you have multiple sites to handle on a single wordpress installation.So you can find this useful and make use of buddy press and some functionality.In case you want a feature to be put in the latest 3.0 version you can suggest what are the features you would love to see by sending a feature request .
