It’s been almost a week since WordPress 2.3 was released. Technically a work week, but you get the idea. Here’s a recap of the coverage so far at Theme Playground, as well as some more links of interest I’ve stumbled over in the past couple of days.
If you have any WordPress 2.3 links I haven’t linked to yet, drop them in the comments. I’d love to know what else is going on out there.
