WordPress 3.6 was released to the public yesterday and it’s another major upgrade.
They've named this one “Oscar” in honor of the great jazz pianist Oscar Peterson.
Here’s a description in Matt Mullenweg’s own words
“The latest and greatest WordPress, version 3.6, is now live to the world and includes a beautiful new blog-centric theme, bullet-proof autosave and post locking, a revamped revision browser, native support for audio and video embeds, and improved integrations with Spotify, Rdio, and SoundCloud.”
Don’t Install Yet
Even though I've been looking forward to the great new features and the colorful new Twenty Thirteen theme, I’ll wait a few days before I install 3.6 on client sites. You know I’m all about security and being safe. This is just another way I stay safe.
Here’s the deal. WordPress 3.6 is already safe, but we need to give plugin and theme developers time to insure compatiblity with the new upgrade. If there’s a conflict it could break your site. Not good!
Meanwhile, watch the video below and read all the details about WordPress 3.6 at WordPress.org.
I’ll be watching the plugins for security issues as they update to fit WordPress 3.6. Want to check plugin compatibility yourself? Open each plugin page and look at "Compatible Up to: 3.6".
