If you haven’t heard already, WordPress 3.8 is just around the corner! If everything goes to schedule, it’s expected to be released in a couple of weeks time, on December 12.
One of the things you’ll first notice when you update is the brand new User Interface. Everything within the Dashboard has been given a fresh coat of paint. The interface is a lot fresher and the layout, a lot cleaner. I’m sure you’ll find, like I did, it looks fantastic.
I was sent a link to a really interesting guide a few days ago. It’s a great tutorial on setting up a WordPress site on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Now, I must warn you, it’s definitely not something a novice user would probably want to try, but for those technically minded or with a little bit of experience in installing WordPress on different hosting environments, I’d highly recommend you have a read.
With each new version of WordPress comes an updated version of my easy to follow WordPress manual, the Easy WP Guide. With the release of WordPress 3.6, I’ve completely rewritten several chapters along with updating of images to reflect any User Interface changes.
WordPress 3.6 has just been released to the world. Nicknamed “Oscar” in honor of the great jazz pianist Oscar Peterson, it includes a beautiful new blog-centric theme, bullet-proof autosave and post locking, a revamped revision browser, native support for audio and video embeds, and improved integrations with Spotify and Rdio.
