WordPress 4.0 Development Begins

On April 30, 2014 some news was released about the kickoff of developing WordPress 4.0. According to the roadmap page on WordPress the 4.0 version should be out by August 27, 2014 which is not too far away, so get ready!

For those unaware, for WordPress, version 4.0 sounds like a “big” version number but it’s just another major release for us, like 3.9 and 4.1, constructed over the same ~4-month release cycle.

Though Andrew says that this release isn’t too big of a deal it still has some cool features going for it. Sarah Gooding writes on WP Tavern about a few features that are going to be in the new release:

  • JSON REST API Plugin: Basically a core plugin and features easy to use framework.
  • Media Grid Project: Gives you an easy way out from the annoying list view with tiny thumbnails when looking through the gallery. This project has been proposed in previous releases but never really came out, so here it is taking a flight. Also, there is a plugin that shaunandrews has been working on, it’s very basic but gets the job done.

So there you have it, new things are coming your way!

After many years of making the process of pasting word processing documents into WordPress, the release of WordPress 3.9 made it even easier to successfully paste text into a Post or a Page.

Online publishing systems gag on this stuff; gremlins breed in the hidden spaces.
