The long awaited release of WordPress 3.6 is here! “Oscar” (named after the great jazz pianist, Oscar Peterson) is available for download now, and even better — your WPZOOM theme is compatible immediately (provided your theme is also up-to-date).
We covered what to actually expect in WordPress 3.6 here on our blog back in June, so check out that post for an in-depth look at what’s new. The new release’s new features are summarised below:
- Vastly improved autosaving.
- Improved handling of multi-author posts through “post locking”.
- More intuitive comparison of post revisions.
- Much cleaner custom menu creation.
- Improved handling of video and audio embeds.
The WordPress.org folks have put together a short video showing off some of the new features:
If your WPZOOM theme isn’t up-to-date, or you’re not sure if you need to upgrade, we have a tutorial in our Support Center which will guide you through that process, step by step. You can see when your theme was last updated here.
When you’re ready to upgrade WordPress, upgrading is as simple as following through the prompts on your WordPress Dashboard. It should only take a minute, and then you’ll be enjoying all of the great new features — and you’ll be making sure your site is secure, too.
