WordPress 3.7 Beta 1

Looks like when I am in Thailand for a holiday over the weekends, WordPress 3.7 Beta 1 [1] is released! WordPress 3.7 will be a short one, with its final version coming in October 2013 and immediately after that, WordPress 3.8 will be targeted for release by end of the year. WordPress 3.8 will be where most of the features are!

One of the features in 3.7 that I am looking for is “Automatic, background updates”. It updates itself in the background, just like Google Chrome! When is the last time you notice Google Chrome is updating? Not me!

3.7 Beta 1 will keep itself updated. That’s right — you’ll be updated each night to the newest development build, and eventually to Beta 2. We’re working to provide as many installs as possible with fast updates to security releases of WordPress — and you can help us test by just installing Beta 1 on your server and seeing how it works!
