After months of betas and release candidates, WordPress 3.1 was finally released yesterday, and as of this writing has been downloaded over 334,000 times. We’re not going to get into any of the improvements and features of WordPress 3.1 here; you can find plenty of that from others here, here, and here. We just wanted to let you know that we’ve updated our starter kits to include this latest release.

In addition to including WordPress 3.1, the starter kits have been updated to include new versions of the following:

  • Atahualpa theme 3.6.4
  • zBench theme 1.1.6
  • Akismet plugin 2.5.3
  • Contact Form 7 plugin 2.4.4
  • SexyBookmarks plugin 3.3.2
  • WordPress.com Stats plugin 1.8.1

As always, we put the starter kits together to save people time, and we have some more ideas on things we’ll be adding to them in the future. You can download the starter kits here.
