WordPress 3.4

WordPress 3.4 has been released.

For Users

The biggest change in 3.4 is the theme customizer which allows you to play around with various looks and settings for your current theme or one you’re thinking about switching to without publishing those changes to the whole world. For themes that support it, you can change colors, backgrounds, and of course custom image headers. We have more planned for the customizer down the road.

Throughout the rest of the admin you’ll notice tweaks to make your everyday life easier. For example, if you have lots of themes we’ve made it quicker to browse them all at once without paging. We’ve made it possible to use images from your media library to populate custom headers, and for you to choose the height and width of your header images.

We’ve expanded our embed support to include tweets: just put a Twitter permalink on its own line in the post editor and we’ll turn it into a beautiful embedded Tweet. And finally, image captions have been improved to allow HTML, like links, in them.

For Developers

There are hundreds of under-the-hood improvements in this release, notably in the XML-RPC, themes, and custom header APIs, and significant performance improvements in WP_Query and the translation system. The Codex has a pretty good summary of the developer features, and you can always dive into Trac directly.

  1. Hi Lester 🙂 I have a quick but important question – snippets showing in google on blog posts only not pages & I really, really need them on pages & I really, really don’t want to switch to gd star rating system – I just need to know the exact code & where to put it in the page.php templates – I put the star rating codes there but it isn’t working that way (showing up in google) here is a site sample page http://breathepossibility.com/inspiration/creative-sol-vibrations-inspirational-works/ he has 12 votes rated but when you look it up in google it’s not showing the snippets, this page uses a portfolio template which then uses the page template for inside the portfolio ( see here http://breathepossibility.com/be-inspired/ ) & since my sponsors really need those snippets to show up in google I have to find a way to make it work ~ thank you so very much for your kind reply you are greatly appreciated 🙂
    Peace & Blessings
