WordPress 4.0!


WordPress 4.0 “Benny” is available for download

“Version 4.0 of WordPress, named “Benny” in honor of jazz clarinetist and bandleader Benny Goodman, is available for download or update in your WordPress dashboard. While 4.0 is just another number for us after 3.9 and before 4.1, we feel we’ve put a little extra polish into it. This release brings you a smoother writing and management experience we think you’ll enjoy.”

WordPress 4.0 Features

Some of the new features include an improved Media Library interface and a bunch of new standard embed codes. “Paste in a YouTube URL on a new line, and watch it magically become an embedded video. Now try it with a tweet. Oh yeah — embedding has become a visual experience. The editor shows a true preview of your embedded content, saving you time and giving you confidence.”

WordPress 4.0 has a new editing window that expands as you add content and keeps the editing toolbar always available. It also has a new screen for selecting plugins to try with more information about the plugins so developers can make better, more informed decisions.
