WordPress 3.1 Launch Prospect 3 is currently readily available. After cautious examination of the 3.1 functions in RC2, we acknowledged the demand to make some changes. There are some substantial distinctions from previous variations of 3.1, so please assess the modifications if you have actually been creating versus a beta or RC variation.
The greatest adjustment is the elimination of AJAX listing tables, which had actually been an initiative to relocate every one of our list-style displays to complete AJAX for pagination, searches, and also column types, and also to combine the list-style displays right into a solitary API that plugins might utilize. However, with even more screening came awareness that there were way too many significant insects and also use problems with just how the capability was executed, so we have actually invested the recently curtailing one of the most essential sections of the attribute.

- For programmers: The whole listing table API is currently significant exclusive If you try to utilize brand-new elements of the API, you are basically assuring that your plugins will certainly barge in a future launch, so please do not do that. We want to make it possible for all the enjoyable brand-new rewards for public usage in a future launch.
