Here comes WordPress 2016…

…well, the theme at least

The default themes shipped with WordPress have been getting progressively better. They also, usefully, avoid the fussier elements and bloated functions that are so common today.

Due out with WordPress 4.4, it’s a modernised approach of the standard horizontal masthead and (optional) right sidebar. It has some neat colour options and was designed on a harmonious fluid grid with a mobile first approach. In a world cluttered by busy and complex themes it’s refreshing to see WordPress stick with a simple, less-is-more, approach.
