WordPress 4.0, now in a installation near you


Last week WP 4.0 “Benny” was released – make sure to update as soon as possible!

The new stuffs:

  • New media archive 
    Actually looks useful. Will be handy when editing a lot of images at once.
  • Embeds previews
    I like it! Will make it a lot easier for editors and writers to understand what content will be shown on the front.
  • Updates to TinyMCE toolbar
    The toolbar will now be sticky at the top of the screen when scrolling down. It will also resize based on the length of your content.
  • Updated “Find plugin” view
    Kind of “meh” feature, but guess it can be useful if you install a lot of plugins directly from the wp-admin.
