WordPress 4.2, nicknamed Powell, after jazz pianist Bud Powell, is now available for download.
Featured improvements include:
1) An improved “Press This” browser tool and mobile bookmark that makes is super easy to share content from around the web on your blog.
2) More embeds! Are already familiar with the built-in embeds for YouTube and MP3 audio files? You just paste the URL on a single line by itself, and WordPress automatically knows how to display them in your posts. Now there is also support for links from Tumblr.com and Kickstarter.
3) A streamlined plugin update process. I haven’t tried it yet, but they are promising “magic!”
I’ll be posting tutorials on these new features very soon. Meanwhile, here’s the official launch video.
