With the upcoming release of WordPress 2.3, be sure to check this list of compatible plugins before rushing out to upgrade your WP install. You just might bog down your own site if an essential plugin turns out to be incompatible.
jQuery UI signals the start of a whole new branch of the jQuery project which will focus on developing high-quality, reusable, components that you’ll be able to drop in your applications. Frequently, these components are coming directly to you from traditional jQuery plugins, but with strict coding, documentation, themeing, and demo standards. We hope you’ll enjoy this new level of quality as much as we do.
With the weekly update to the 2.3 beta, WordPress 2.3 will be available as a final release on the 24th of September. Several bugs were fixed in the period between Beta 1 and Beta 2, and more should surface and be fixed before the final release is made available for public download.
