A new version of WP is on the way! WordPress 3.4 has hit the critical Release Candidate stage which means that the somewhat faint of heart can try it with the help of the WordPress Beta Tester plugin (which is how I do it for this site).
From the looks of things, Catherine and I will have our work cut out for us writing our book—a lot of the updates are theme related. Good thing we’ve been using the beta versions since the beginning on our test/demo/showcase site.
Theme updates side—which themes will have to be updated to support in some cases—everything that I’ve seen and tried assures me of one thing:
WordPress is just as easy and powerful as always. If you know how to use your WP site now, you aren’t going to have to relearn things.
Of course when the time comes later in June for me to teach my advanced WordPress class, I’ll have some updates to make to the class.
Until then…happy testing!
