    Automattic has released WordPress 3.2 Beta 1 for public while the current version is 3.1.2 just launch this April 2011. You sign up as beta tester in WordPress and you can download and install in your local machine. The suggestion is don’t try Beta version in your real website because it’s still under development.

    If you’re a WordPress plugin or Themes developer you have to start considered the compatibility with new engine, so when it launched your plugin will be compatible with WordPress 3.2.  From the official blog said that Favorites menu will be removed and it will not support with old browser like IE6.

    Here’s some of what’s new:

    • Performance improvements like you wouldn’t believe. What’s that mean? Things are faster!
    • Distraction-free Writing. The visual editor’s full-screen composing experience has gotten a major overhaul, and is now available from HTML mode, too. More than ever, WordPress allows you to focus on what matters most — your content.
    • Admin UI Refresh. The last major redesign of the WordPress admin was in 2008. This isn’t a major redesign, just a little facelift to keep us feeling young. WordPress turns 8 later this month, you know.
    • New Default Theme. Introducing Twenty Eleven, based on the popular Duster theme. Rotating header images, post format support, and more.
    • Browse Happy. WordPress is made to work with modern browsers. If you visit your Dashboard using an outdated web browser, we’ll let you know there’s a newer version available.
    • Admin Bar. We’ve added more links to the admin bar to make it even more useful.

    More detail information, check this site and WordPress 3.2 Beta 1.
