The new Twenty Thirteen theme inspired by modern art puts focus on your content with a colorful, single-column design made for media-rich blogging.
Revamped Revisions save every change and the new interface allows you to scroll easily through changes to see line-by-line who changed what and when.
Post Locking and Augmented Autosave will especially be a boon to sites where more than a single author is working on a post. Each author now has their own autosave stream, which stores things locally as well as on the server (so much harder to lose something) and there’s an interface for taking over editing of a post, as demonstrated beautifully by our bearded buddies in the video above.
Built-in HTML5 media player for native audio and video embeds with no reliance on external services.
The Menu Editor is now much easier to understand and use.
A new audio/video API gives you access to metadata like ID3 tags.
You can now choose HTML5 markup for things like comment and search forms, and comment lists.
Better filters for how revisions work, so you can store a different amount of history for different post types.
WordPress 3.6 RC2 is out! The final version of WordPress 3.6 will be out in a couple of days.
We’re down to only a few remaining issues, and the final release should be available in a matter of days. In RC2, we’ve tightened up some aspects of revisions, autosave, and the media player, and fixed some bugs that were spotted in RC1. Please test this release candidate as much as you can, so we can deliver a smooth final release!
WordPress 3.6 RC1 is out! The final version of WordPress 3.6 will be out in a couple of weeks. I am guessing there will be 2 or more RCs till the final release.
The first release candidate for WordPress 3.6 is now available.
We hope to ship WordPress 3.6 in a couple weeks. But to do that, we really need your help! If you haven’t tested 3.6 yet, there’s no time like the present. (But please: not on a live production site, unless you’re feeling especially adventurous.)
Think you’ve found a bug? Please post to the Alpha/Beta area in the support forums. If any known issues come up, you’ll be able to find them here. Developers, please test your plugins and themes, so that if there is a compatibility issue, we can sort it out before the final release.
As you may have heard, we backed the Post Format UI feature out of the release. On the other hand, our slick new revisions browser had some extra time to develop. You should see it with 200+ revisions loaded — scrubbing back and forth at lightning speed is a thing of beauty.
Delayed, but still loved The release will be out soon Test it, por favor
WordPress 3.6 Beta 1 has been released! The final version of WordPress 3.6 is expected to ship on 29th April 2013.
To start off, WordPress 3.6 will ship with a new default theme, named Twenty Thirteen.
What’s New In WordPress 3.6
Post Formats: Post Formats now have their own UI, and theme authors have access to templating functions to access the structured data.
Twenty Thirteen: We’re shipping this year’s default theme in our first release of the year. Twenty Thirteen is an opinionated, color-rich, blog-centric theme that makes full use of the new Post Formats support.
Audio/Video: You can embed audio and video files into your posts without relying on a plugin or a third party media hosting service.
Autosave: Posts are now autosaved locally. If your browser crashes, your computer dies, or the server goes offline as you’re saving, you won’t lose the your post.
Post Locking: See when someone is currently editing a post, and kick them out of it if they fall asleep at the keyboard.
Nav Menus: Nav menus have been simplified with an accordion-based UI, and a separate tab for bulk-assigning menus to locations.
Revisions: The all-new revisions UI features avatars, a slider that scrubs through history, and two-slider range comparisons.
