I updated the blog today to WordPress 3.6, as well as a number of test sites I use for template and plugin tests. I’m happy to see that this release hasn’t broken anything I’ve been working on. Thank you WordPress!
Released a few days ago, “Oscar” comes with a number of new features, many of which I see useful for those that are using WordPress as a blogging platform. Using WordPress as a platform for building business websites, not so much.
The updated Revisions reminds me of some of the source control systems I’ve used in the past. In fact, it’s actually better than some of those systems. Seeing the two text revisions side by side, with the differences highlighted, is brilliant for those writing long complex articles.
Auto-Save and Post Locking is going to be great for multi-author blogs.
The new Twenty Thirteen theme…meh. But I think it’s just that I haven’t yet warmed up to it yet from a design perspective. Maybe I’m not ready for a single column layout yet. I need to roll up my sleeves and get behind the scenes to see what tricks the team at Automattic has done. Lately I’m beginning new projects with a modified Underscores starter theme, so maybe I’ll find some new concepts that I can apply to my starter theme.
