WordPress 4.6 Released

WordPress 4.6 has been released.


What’s New

  • Streamlined Updates – Don’t lose your place: stay on the same page while you update, install, and delete your plugins and themes.
  • Native Fonts – The WordPress dashboard now takes advantage of the fonts you already have, making it load faster and letting you feel more at home on whatever device you use.
  • Inline Link Checker – Ever accidentally made a link to https://wordpress.org/example.org? Now WordPress automatically checks to make sure you didn’t.
  • Content Recovery – As you type, WordPress saves your content to the browser. Recovering saved content is even easier with WordPress 4.6.
  • Resource Hints- Resource hints help browsers decide which resources to fetch and preprocess. WordPress 4.6 adds them automatically for your styles and scripts making your site even faster
  • Robust Requests – The HTTP API now leverages the Requests library, improving HTTP standard support and adding case-insensitive headers, parallel HTTP requests, and support for Internationalized Domain Names.
  • WP_Term_Query and WP_Post_Type – A new WP_Term_Query class adds flexibility to query term information while a new WP_Post_Type object makes interacting with post types more predictable.
  • Meta Registration API – The Meta Registration API has been expanded to support types, descriptions, and REST API visibility.
  • Translations On Demand – WordPress will install and use the newest language packs for your plugins and themes as soon as they’re available from WordPress.org’s community of translators.
  • JavaScript Library Updates – Masonry 3.3.2, imagesLoaded 3.2.0, MediaElement.js 2.22.0, TinyMCE 4.4.1, and Backbone.js 1.3.3 are bundled.
  • Customizer APIs for Setting Validation and Notifications – Settings now have an API for enforcing validation constraints. Likewise, customizer controls now support notifications, which are used to display validation errors instead of failing silently.
  • Multisite, now faster than ever – Cached and comprehensive site queries improve your network admin experience. The addition of WP_Site_Query and WP_Network_Query help craft advanced queries with less effort.
