May 1st was marked as a special day for all WordPress fans, as it was the first day of Wordcamp 2010 held in San Francisco. It was the flagship event of the whole Wordcamp 2010 tour, aimed at development of WP community worldwide and showing ‘what’s new’ to all comers.
This year San Francisco attracted more than 600 Wordcamp visitors (up to 800 from various sources), this was the first from 45 conferences planned for this year, 3 less than was last year.
WordPress appeared in 2002 as a new word in that times open source software kit for blogging sites titled B2. When Matt Mullenweg has joined the B2 team, the B2 content management system was renamed and a new era of blogging software began – the era of WordPress. It was a new generation geek tool for creating functional blogs and websites whose popularity grew day by day and now it became the most popular open source CMS in the whole world.
WordPress community brand is managed by Automatic, the company founded by Matt Mullenweg, but the WordPress code stays ‘copyleft’, not belonging to anyone except community. There are already 45 million of WordPress subscribes, 70 million plugins and themese were created, WordPress pages were visited about 35 billion times.
The new release promises even more customizing facilities for both front-end and dashboard side. The novelties include the following:
- custom menu: plug-in menus location is fully customizable
- making icons or plug-ins fit
- custom navigation: enhanced facilities for better user convenience.
Currently WordPress CMS contains 300 pages and unlimited facilities for creating unique online solutions. This summer WordPress is going to release its own e-commerce system named WP Commerce together with the release of 3.0 WordPress version. The integrated e-commerce engine will be capable of handling internet shopping activity without any plug-ins, so users will feel that WordPress offers all-in-one tool kit for all of their purposes.
WordPress is also planning to release written guidelines for developers of plug-ins. Perhaps written guidelines mean more control from WordPress authorities under open-source developing community or it is just a step to a single plug-in standard. However, the end users will not feel any restrictions, as headers on every page, menus and post types will be fully customizable. Additionally, there will be no default Kubrick theme any more. The 2010 reveals the new default theme, that is much awaited, as the old one was really awful!

|WordPress is a state-of-the-art publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, web standards, and usability. WordPress is both free and priceless at the same time.|
More simply, WordPress is what you use when you want to work with your blogging software, not fight it.
