WordPress MU (multi-user) has been molded into WordPress Thelonious (Monk) creating a “new multi-site functionality which makes it possible to run one blog or ten million from the same installation”. WordPress 3.0 also features bulk updates, which allows users to upgrade all plug-ins with a single click, lots of bug fixes, and a new “lighter interface”. It is now available for upgrade from within the dashboard.
