Five long months of hard work and the wait is finally over. WordPress recently announced the launch of their latest version- WordPress 3.9- and it seems as if businesses will be handsomely rewarded for displaying their virtue of patience.
The latest version of WordPress, dubbed as "Smith", presents developers with another set of changes to the core system. This time, the main focus of the framework development team was on back-end editing and admin functions- live theme previews, improved widget UI, media playlists, gallery reviews, and TinyMCE Visual Editor updates, to name a few.
WordPress developers will have a number of additional features to look forward to while working with this new version of the popular development framework. A number of core changes are likely to impact the work of those who deal with WordPress themes and plugins. A brief listing of the new aspects of this updated WordPress version are:
Rewritten multisite load process
WordPress 3.9 is based on the MySQL Improved database extension (mysqli)
Refactored AutoSave function to deal with issues related to heartbeat and autosaving functionalities
Updates on such features as TinyMCE, PIupload, PHPMailer, Masonry3, Underscore 1.6 and Backbone 1.1
Similarly, users visiting the websites and blogs developed using the WordPress 3.9 Framework will be treated to a number of new features and improvements.
Improved widget interface that makes live previews more interesting
Updated visual editor to allow live preview of user gallery and drag-and-drop functionalities
Live theme preview shows how the site will look on a new preview
Create and manage playlists for audio and video files
Developers who have been working with WordPress should now look forward to including all the available upgraded features on offer from WordPress 3.9 to their repository. That will make working on new development projects an effortless endeavour for them.
