WordPress.org has come on stage with its latest hit, WordPress 4.6, named “Pepper” in honour of jazz baritone saxophonist Park Frederick “Pepper” Adams III. You can checkout its debut appearance in your WordPress dashboard or download the latest update here.
This is a major release and users can see some noticeable differences in the appearance, especially in their administration area. The theme of this new release is in allowing you to focus on your performance. A simpler workflow has been included, with many processes now handled on one screen as well as editor improvements making WordPress faster and smarter than ever. This release gets you going places, faster!
A really neat feature is one that gives users the power to update and install plugins and themes without being redirected to the progress screen. This simplifies the workflow saves you valuable administration time.
Native System Fonts
Now you can take advantage of the native system fonts on your local machine. This simply means that pages load faster than ever.
Content is King
With this release, if you lose Internet connection, your drafts are automatically saved locally so nothing is lost!
The broken link checker is right on song. When you add links inside of your content, WordPress will simply highlight any errors it finds. Giving you the freedom to produce and publish pitch perfect content.
Developers will be singing Pepper’s praises when they see what’s included for them inside the WordPress 4.6 core improvements. Items such as standardised metadata registration, New WP_Post_type Class, New WP_term_Query and HTTP API internal changes.
Release 4.6 comes with many other performance and stability improvements and you can check them out on the company’s official announcement post.
