In case there was any doubt, Austin Gunter at WP-Engine declares WordPress to be a mature platform:

It’s one thing to make claims about WordPress’s hypothetical ability to be used in production by major organizations, it’s entirely another to actually see WordPress used in production by some of the highest-trafficked websites on the internet. These sites not only put the codebase to the test, and require a robust managed WordPress hosting platform to serve their traffic, but they also test the software’s suitability to a large-scale publication environment, and provide worthy test-cases of WordPress’s robust functionality.

With sites like CNN, The Wall Street Journal, and The New York Times using WordPress, I think we can put to rest the notion that WP isn’t suited for any publishing need imaginable.
