WordPress 3.4 ishere and out the door We have actually called this launch “Environment-friendly” in honor of guitar player Grant Green whose emotional simpleness has actually maintained a number of us firm throughout this launch.
This launch consists of considerable renovations to motif personalization, personalized headers, Twitter installs, and also picture subtitles– right here’s a brief clip with the highlights:
The largest modification in 3.4 is the motif customizer which enables you to experiment with different appearances and also setups for your existing motif or one you’re considering switching over to without releasing those adjustments to the entire globe. For motifs that sustain it, you can transform shades, histories, and also naturally personalized picture headers. We have actually a lot more prepared for the customizer later on.
Throughout the remainder of the admin you’ll see tweaks to make your daily life much easier. For instance, if you have great deals of motifs we have actually made it quicker to search them at one time without paging. We have actually made it feasible to utilize photos from your media collection to inhabit personalized headers, and also for you to pick the elevation and also size of your header photos.
We have actually increased our embed assistance to consist of tweets: simply place a Twitter permalink by itself line in the message editor and also we’ll transform it right into a lovely ingrained Tweet. And also lastly, picture subtitles have actually been boosted to enable HTML, like web links, in them.
There are thousands of under-the-hood renovations in this launch, significantly in the XML-RPC, motifs, and also personalized header APIs, and also considerable efficiency renovations in WP_Query and also the translation system. The Codex has a pretty good summary of the developer features, and also you can constantly dive into Trac directly.
We have actually additionally put together a busy developer’s field guide to the new APIs in 3.4.
