What’s new in WordPress 3.9?

Just by the end of last year, WordPress community welcomed the release of WordPress 3.8 Parker. Couple months later, once again we are expecting another milestone: WordPress 3.9 which is scheduled for the release in April.

Meanwhile, WordPress 3.9 Beta 1 has been released recently and this becomes a hot topic everywhere. We all know that WordPress 3.8 has been a great release with improvements in the UI. Now coming to WordPress 3.9, it is promising release with significant improvements and updates in the core as well as the user experience in which good becomes better.

We are testing WordPress 3.9 Beta 1 in all our products as well, so I think I would give you guys a heads up on what to expect from WordPress 3.9. Here we go!

Major update: TinyMCE

Who doesn’t know TinyMCE? I hope not to see anyone here. We all know that TinyMCE is a powerful platform that provide the visual editor in WordPress. In WordPress 3.9, the team will update TinyMCE to its latest version 4.0.

This is considered as the major update of WordPress. With the latest version of TinyMCE, the team aims to a cleaner markup.

Differences between the TinyMCE Editor in WordPress 3.9 & 3.8

The team also approaches a new way of handling the Paste function, especially when you copy and paste texts from Microsoft Word. The button “Paste from Word” has been removed. When I tested pasting a block of text from Word into the new Editor and to be honest, it did not have much difference between WordPress 3.8 and WordPress 3.9.

Besides, there are other new things in the new version of TinyMCE editor like: the color picker for Text color has been dropped and Horizontal Line button is added.

WordPress 3.7 was released, 6 function update

WordPress 3.7, named “Basie”;This WordPress 3.7 release features some of the most important architectural updates. Here are the big ones:

  • Updates while you sleep: With WordPress 3.7, you don’t have to lift a finger to apply maintenance and security updates. Most sites are now able to automatically apply these updates in the background. The update process also has been made even more reliable and secure, with dozens of new checks and safeguards.
  • Stronger password recommendations: Your password is your site’s first line of defense. It’s best to create passwords that are complex, long, and unique. To that end, our password meter has been updated in WordPress 3.7 to recognize common mistakes that can weaken your password: dates, names, keyboard patterns (123456789), and even pop culture references.
  • Better global support: Localized versions of WordPress will receive faster and more complete translations. WordPress 3.7 adds support for automatically installing the right language files and keeping them up to date, a boon for the many millions who use WordPress in a language other than English.

For developers there are lots of options around how to control the new updates feature, including allowing it to handle major upgrades as well as minor ones, more sophisticated date query support, and multisite improvements.
