WordPress 3.4 (Green) - New and Noteworthy

Posted on 6.18.2012

Wordpress 3.4 has arrived and comes with some significant improvements worthy of note - let's take a look!

Perhaps the most important change in 3.4 is the theme customizer which allows users to change the look and setting of an active theme without publishing the changes for everyone. Users can change colors, backgrounds and custom image headers on themes that support it. Wordpress also make it easier to use images from a media library to popular custom headers and now empowers users to choose the height and width of those header images.

Wordpress also expaned its embed support to include tweets. Now, users only have to put a Twitter permalink on its own line in the post editor and Wordpress will turn it into an embedded tweet.

But that's not all. Wordperss users can now also include HTML (and links) within image captions. Read through the list of user and developer features within the Codex.
