WordPress 3.7 is finally out!

Fruitfulujah Network has been updated to the latest version. You might not notice a thing, and we’re okay with that. According to official statement from WordPress.org, these are some of the changes in the new release:

Background Updates

Updates While You Sleep

With WordPress 3.7, you don’t have to lift a finger to apply maintenance and security updates. Most sites are now able to automatically apply these updates in the background, though some configurations may not allow it.

More Reliable Than Ever

The update process has been made even more reliable and secure, with dozens of new checks and safeguards.

You’ll still need to click “Update Now” once WordPress 3.8 is released, but we’ve never had more confidence in that beautiful blue button.

Create Stronger Passwords

Your password is your site’s first line of defense. It’s best to create passwords that are complex, long, and unique. To that end, our password meter has been updated in WordPress 3.7 to recognize common mistakes that can weaken your password: dates, names, keyboard patterns (123456789), and even pop culture references.

Improved Search Results

Search results are now ordered by how well the search query matches a post, instead of ordered only by date. For example, when your search terms match a post title, that result will be pushed to the top.

Better Global Support

Localized versions of WordPress will receive faster and more complete translations. WordPress 3.7 adds support for automatically installing the right language files and keeping them up to date.

Under the Hood

More Background Updates (Experimental)

Want WordPress to always update automatically, even for major feature releases? Want to always keep a certain plugin up to date in the background? WordPress 3.7 comes with fine-grained update controls for developers and systems administrators.

Advanced Date Queries

Developers can now query for posts within a date range, or that are older than or newer than a specific point in time. Or get really fancy: all posts written on Friday afternoons? Not a problem.

Multisite Improvements

wp_get_sites() allows developers to easily get an array of all the sites on your network without resorting to a direct database query — just one of many improvements to multisite in WordPress 3.7.
