The next major release for WordPress, version 4.1 is due to be released on December 15 2014.
You can read some (work in progress) information about the new release on the WordPress.org website.
We will be reviewing and testing WordPress 4.1 as soon as it’s released and then start our upgrade process for all our hosting customers shortly thereafter.
Notable changes / additions for WordPress 4.1 include:
- New default theme “Twenty Fifteen“
- WordPress Admin:
- A new distraction-free writing mode for the editor
- Inline formatting toolbar for images embedded into posts
- For developers: A new and better way to handle theme Title Tag
All WP NET customers should be on v4.1 before Christmas — a nice little present from WordPress!
