We will be upgrading the site to WordPress 3.1 soon. One of the most noticeable changes will be an additional toolbar across the top of your screen when you log in. This new toolbar has buttons for most of the common tasks you’ll perform, such as adding a new page or post, as well as switching to another site’s dashboard. The normal dashboard items are still there to do these things, but now they’re in a more convenient location as well.
