WordPress 4.0 has arrived

WordPress Web Platform

Arriving without a fanfare last week, the WordPress 4.0 launch is a low-key affair.

It sounds like a big thing, VERSION FOUR, but in reality the numbering is not so significant as it’s on a par with the 3.8 to 3.9 schedule.

On the other hand, for the 60m web-sites in the world that run WordPress it is a big thing. Continuing with the year-old policy of automated upgrades we’ll be rolling out “Benny” as it’s known to our client base over the next few weeks.

We got early access to WordPress 4.0, which is kinda cool and the big thing clients will notice is the ease of editing and a much improved media library. And, erm, that’s it.

We’re taking it steady and there’s still a fair amount of testing to go as we need to validate, check and approve over 150 plugins used by clients. In the meantime, lets get ready to welcome Benny, named in honour of Benny Goodman the great Jazzman.
