QUICK HIT: Put Some Pepper In Your WordPress
There's a new version of WordPress (dubbed Pepper) available and it's packed with important performance improvements as well as some very useful new features for those using the popular publishing system.
Let's take a quick, closer look at some of the new features:
- One-Page Updates: Installing, updating or deleting plugins and themes can now be done on the same page.
- Native Fonts: The dashboard now uses fonts already on your device, making it load faster.
- Broken Link Checker: WordPress now provides a notification when an error has been made. The platform highlights broken links in much the same way it highlights typos.
- Content Recovery: Now stores content in the browser, making recovery easier should computer or Internet failures happen.
There are numerous other performance related improvements including updates to requests, translations, the meta-registration API and more.
