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.
