Finally, the much expected major upgrade of WordPress has been released and is named “Smith” in honor of Jazz organist Jimmy Smith.
WordPress 3.9 has some unique features, namely:
Improved visual editing
The updated visual editor has improved speed, accessibility, and mobile support. You can paste into the visual editor from your word processor, like Microsoft Word without wasting time to clean up messy styling.
Edit images easily
With quicker access to crop and rotation tools, it’s now much easier to edit your images while editing posts. You can also scale images directly in the editor to find just the right fit.
Drag and drop your images
Uploading your images is easier than ever. Just grab them from your desktop and drop them in the editor.
Galleries display a beautiful grid of images right in the editor, just like they do in your published post.
Images have galleries; now WordPress 3.9 has added simple audio and video playlists, so you can showcase your music and clips.
Not forgetting Live widget and header previews
Add, edit, and rearrange your site’s widgets right in the theme customizer. No “save and surprise” — preview your changes live and only save them when you’re ready.
The improved header image tool also lets you upload, crop, and manage headers while customizing your theme.
These and more other features has been added to the release.
You can download WordPress 3.9 on its official site.
If you on Fruitfulujah platform then you need not take any further action, because the platform has been automatically upgraded to the most recent version. Simply enjoy the new release.
