I was able to perform a WordPress 3.0 upgrade yesterday. It went without a hitch. Making a single blog into a multi-site blog was a bit more involved. It wasn’t entirely a smooth transition because WordPress somehow detected that I already had a network running, which was simply not true. I ended up cutting and pasting several pieces of code to configure wp-config.php and .htaccess. In the end, the upgrade was a success.
Just a couple of minor things that I want to mention. The current version of of the Google Sitemaps plugin no longer works with WordPress 3.0. I’m not sure why. I also ended up removing the ‘blog’ slug from the permalink, so that it didn’t break my old permalinks. I also had to reconfigure the plugin called ‘Download Manager’ because it didn’t work after the upgrade.
This is probably the most involved WordPress upgrade I have done. It’s was involved because there were a large amount of features and enhancements in this version as well as merging WordPress and WordPress Mu. Congratulations to the WordPress Development team for making this release a huge success.
I was tested it today on site thecamels.org when had writing posts. New WP is faster, but I had seeing, that when you write a huge blocks of text it has laggs 😛
I’ve noticed the speed as well. Much faster. Not sure about large blocks of texts. My blog posts are usually short.

Does Black Letterhead work with the new 3.0 features or will there be a need for an update at some point? Thanks.
Yes, the theme works with 3.0. I have it running on my development site. There is one thing I haven’t tested, it’s the new ‘Menu System’ feature of WordPress 3.0.
