19 Aug WordPress 4.3 Released – Testing and Updates
Early this morning WordPress finished final pre-flight checks for WordPress 4.3 and completed a full release. You can now update your WordPress from within your dashboard.
What’s Under the Hood?
WordPress 4.3 includes 180 bug fixes, increased security for default passwords, Menus in the Customizer, Formatting Shortcuts, Site Icons and many items that tidy up the process. View full list of all changes.
The feature that we like the most is the Formatting Shortcuts. It allows you to easily and quickly apply formatting to headers and bulleted/numbered lists by simply adding a # before a header or adding the number or – before the first list item. This saves seconds as you no longer need to use a keyboard shortcut after highlighting the text or grabbing your mouse.
Testing and Updates
We test all our plugins against the latest beta releases of WordPress and plugins so that we can spot as many potential issues as possible prior to the full release.
Now that there is a full release available, we are performing a final test to ensure there are no issues. Once testing is complete, we will schedule our customers websites to be updated within 24 hours. If you are hosted with us, your website will be scheduled to be updated shortly.
