WordPress makes your blogging experience even better with the release of Version 3.6. The latest version includes a beautiful new default theme, improved auto-save, post-locking and revisions browser. Audio and video embeds are now natively supported, and integrations with Spotify, Rdio, and SoundCloud have been improved. The release was named “Oscar” in honor of jazz pianist Oscar Peterson.
Twenty Thirteen, The Future is Fantastic
Inspired by modern art, Twenty Thirteen features quirky details, beautiful typography, and high-contrast colors with a flexible layout that looks great on any device, big or small. The new default theme puts focus on your content with a colorful, single-column design made for media-rich blogging.
From the first word you write, WordPress saves every change. Each revision is always at your fingertips. Text is highlighted as you scroll through revisions at lightning speed, so you can see what changes have been made along the way.
Never lose a word you’ve written. Autosaving is now even better; whether your power goes out, your browser crashes, or you lose your internet connection, your content is safe.
Better Post Locking
Always know who’s editing with live updates that appear in the list of posts. And if someone leaves for lunch with a post open, you can take over where they left off.
New Media Player
Share your audio and video with the new built-in HTML5 media player. Upload files using the media manager and embed them in your posts.
Embed Music from Spotify, Rdio, and SoundCloud
Embed songs and albums from your favorite artists, or playlists you’ve mixed yourself. It’s as simple as pasting a URL into a post on its own line.
The new audio/video APIs give developers access to powerful media metadata, like ID3 tags.
Themes can now choose improved HTML5 markup for comment forms, search forms, and comment lists.
Search content for shortcodes with
has_shortcode() and adjust shortcode attributes with a new filter.
Fine-grained revision controls allow you to keep a different number of revisions for each post type.
