So guys , Its official now that version WordPress 3.6 of WordPress is available now for update. Just a couple of week before, Release Candidate 2 version of WordPress 3.6 was made available. Of course WordPress users now it all, but for those who don’t lets shout it out loud.
Okay according to Internet Guru, I read some features like :
- new theme
- post locking
- revision doing
- audio and video embed
- As I was writing this blog I felt that the autosave was more faster than before, like every minute logs was being kept. Even for multiple author type blog sites, its an advantage. This might tell us that WordPress does focus on user experience and site improvement.
Revision style is much cooler now, to navigate. You can compare two revision at a time and if needed restore the revised post. Text is highlighted as you scroll through revisions at lightning speed, so you can see what changes have been made along the way.It’s easy to compare two revisions from any point in time, and to restore a revision and go back to writing. Now you can be confident that no mistake is permanent.
- Each author now has their own autosave stream, which stores things locally as well as on the server (so much harder to lose something) and there’s an interface for taking over editing of a post. You can know who’s editing with live updates that appear in the list of posts. And if someone leaves to attend a phone call with a post open, you can take over where they left off. So, post locking will be useful and helpful for users.
- Oh yeah! the new twenty thirteen theme, might be a slight hint of 2013 year or Friendship month gift. inspired by modern art, the new Twenty Thirteen puts focus on your content with a colorful, single-column design made for media-rich blogging.
- For native audio and video embeds with no reliability on external services, the built-in html5 media player does wow you. Upload files using the media manager and embed them in your posts. Embed songs and albums from your favorite artists, or playlists you’ve mixed yourself. It’s as simple as pasting a URL into a post on its own line. SoundCloud, spotify and Rdio does walk hand in hand with WordPress 3.6
Plugins are also being made compatible with this new version. For now I have Akismet 2.5.8 but new version Akismet 2.5.9 is also 100 % compatible, as per WordPress dashboard.
This version 3.6 is in honor of the great jazz pianist Oscar Peterson. Thus called WordPress 3.6 Oscar.
