WordPress 3.4 Released

Today saw the release of WordPress 3.4.  This was a fairly significant release with a swag of new features and functionality as outlined below :

WordPress Theme Customisation

The biggest change in WP 3.4 for users is the theme customizer.  This new features (found in Appearence >> Themes and then clicking on the customise link) allows WP administrators to play around with various looks and settings for either the currently active theme (or a theme you are considering switching to) without publishing the changes to the live site.  The options available for this feature are theme dependent.

It’s al;so now easier to browse thorugh the themes you have installed.

WordPress Customised Headers

If you are using a theme that supports custom headers, it is now possible to select images from the WP media library to modify your header images, and it is now easy (without hacking code) to choose the height and width of your header images.

WordPressTwitter Embedding

WordPress support for twitter embeds has also been given a big boost: simply paste  a Twitter permalink on its own line in the editor and and WordPress 3.4 automatically it into a fabulous embedded Tweet.
