The site broke through the 3 million barrier early on Monday morning UK time, with the honours taken by a short article about Norwegian actor Beate Eriksen. (The Guardian)

This is indeed a milestone and also puts other recent news and controversies surrounding Wikipedia into perspective: written about those incidents here, here, here, here, and here.
