WordPress 3.3 beta 1 has just been released and is ready for beta testers. WordPress lead developer Ryan Boren made the announcement on the WordPress blog.

As with any beta software, it's not recommended to run this on your production environment so I'll be installing this latest beta version on my development server so I can check out what's been updated and update the Easy WP Guide accordingly. So, keep an eye out for a new version in the coming months!

Some of the new features that Ryan mentioned were:

  • Media uploader
  • Improved admin bar
  • Fly out admin menus

It seems like only yesterday that WordPress 3.2 was released!
