Those are just some of the new features in WordPress 4.5; many back-end improvements have also been made including those to embed templates and the script loader for example. WordPress also made updates to the JavaScript libraries (jQuery, Backbone and Underscore are bundled).

WordPress is a content management system (CMS) currently powering over 25 percent of websites. The latest version is dubbed “Coleman,” in honor of jazz saxophonist Coleman Hawkins.
