The best web framework, WordPress has launched a newest version, affectionately named “Sonny,” and is now available for download.
WordPress has had over 65 million downloads since version 3.0 was released, and in this third major iteration is focused on new user experience, uploading, navigation, and imports. Check out Sonny 3.3 video from WordPress:
This is a quiet, but slick upgrade, adding nice features from the admin perspective and designed specifically for a decent HTML5 browser (hint, don’t use IE or anything related to Microsoft for that matter, who said that?). You will never need to use that atrocious “browse files” dialog box again!
In addition, there’s now a single upload panel for all media — no matter what file types you want to add, WordPress has you covered: RAR, 7z archive formats, and even the new Tumblr Importer!
If you’ve ever received the “Warning: Bob is currently editing this post” message, you’ll be pleased to hear that co-editing activity lags should be a thing of the past.
And, there’s more!
Version 3.3 also offers:
- a new dashboard welcome screen for fresh installations
- a new post-update changelog screen
- more flexible and faster permalinks
- an overhaul of the editor API
- a new WP_Screen API for working with admin panels
- a new is_main_query() for determining whether you’re in the main loop
A nifty update from the world-beater WordPress to be sure, download it here.
