Just ran some stats on where WordPress 3.0 development is compared to some of the previous larger releases:

  • Closed 896 tickets so far compared to the previous peak of 786 for 2.8 and only 448 in 2.9
  • Been coding for ~5months so far compared to 7 months for 2.5 and 9 months for 1.5 (Those were the days!)
