Notes on WordPress 4.0 – “evolutionary”

4 Flares 4 Flares ×

Evolutionary but not revolutionary. It’s a big new number but a “regular” number of new features—some really useful, however. The other good news is that fewer big changes means fewer chances of breakage while updating.

WordPress 4.0 “Benny” has been released today. Here’s the intro video

 

Features

new media library uses space more effectively: infinitely scrolling “grid view” added to the “list view”

new plugin views use space less effectively but provide more info:

 

TinyMCE  editor: New behavior of the editor is really useful – having the top bar be “pinnable” so it’s always visible is key for pages with lots of content. There are other improvements to keyboard and cursor interaction with TinyMCE views.

Looking forward to using it and to WordCamp in October.

Other features:

  1. Previews of oEmbed URLs in the visual editor and via the “Insert from URL” tab in the media modal.
  2. Select a language when installing WordPress
  3. Widgets in the Customizer are now loaded in a separate panel
  4. Improvements to formatting functions
