Testers, Beta 3 is now available! You know the drill: use a test install, see what you can break, and report any bugs you find. There have been 200 commits since Beta 2, but at this point, betas are not adding new features — it’s all about fixing bugs, making things a little prettier, and editing text strings.
As always, plugin and theme authors, PLEASE test your code against the beta so you can catch any incompatibilities now rather than after your users update their WordPress installation and find bugs for you. This time we really mean it, especially if your plugin uses jQuery. We’ve now updated to jQuery 1.7 in core, so please please pretty please check your plugins and themes against beta 3.

WordPress 3.3 is ready for beta testers.
As always, this is software still in development and we don’t recommend that you run it on a production site — set up a test site just to play with the new version. If you break it (find a bug), please report it, and if you’re a developer, try to help us fix it.
If all goes well, we hope to release WordPress 3.3 by the end of November. The more help we get with testing and fixing bugs, the sooner we will be able to release the final version. If you want to be a beta tester, you should check out the Codex article on how to report bugs.
Here’s some of what’s new:

Google recently upgraded their docs interface and they made big improvements within Google Docs. I have always been comfortable with their word processor, but recently I decided to take the plunge and begin using their spreadsheet doc.
Things seemed to be a bit streamlined and I was okay with the clean, simple interface. My biggest challenge was inserting multiple rows.
Clicking on every menu, right-clicking on single rows, or trying the traditional ctrl + did not do the trick. It is a little cumbersome, but here is how I got around this annoyance:
This what Google gives you by default:
