[wp-hackers] Version 3.0

The two big things to keep an eye on:

- For better custom post type support, page-new.php, edit-pages.php,
edit-page-form.php, etc., were merged into post-new.php,
edit.php?post_type=page, and edit-form-advanced.php (respectively). That
came with a huge number of backend changes on those panels. Any plugins that
depended on low-level tie-ins here will see some issues. See

- The number one goal of the MU merge is backwards compatibility, but
keeping an eye on http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/11644 will be a good

After that, the big things for 3.0 are new features: menu management UI, the
2010 theme, and core plugins.
