According to official release:
“An RC comes after the beta period and before final release. That means we think we’re done. We currently have no known issues or bugs to squash. But with tens of millions of users, a variety of configurations, and thousands of plugins, it’s possible we’ve missed something. So if you haven’t tested WordPress 3.1 yet, now is the time! Please though, not on your live site unless you’re extra adventurous.”
Well every WordPress user excited to see WordPress 3.1 because it offer a lot of features like easy way to link earlier posts in write panel, new “Admin Bar”, access to new post templates and post styles, Ajax based admin screens.
Thinking of giving it a try but remember that it is not ready to use on live site, you can use it for testing purposes only.
