WordPress 3.1 Launch Prospect 3 is currently offered. After cautious assessment of the 3.1 functions in RC2, we acknowledged the demand to make some changes. There are some considerable distinctions from previous variations of 3.1, so please examine the modifications if you have actually been creating versus a beta or RC variation.
The largest 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 kinds, and also to settle the list-style displays right into a solitary API that plugins might utilize. However, with even more screening came understandings that there were a lot of significant insects and also use problems with exactly how the capability was executed, so we have actually invested the recently curtailing one of the most vital parts of the function.

- For designers: The whole listing table API is currently significant exclusive If you try to utilize brand-new parts 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.
