Our blogging platform was upgraded yesterday to 4.2.2. The version 4.2 is named “Powell” after jazz piano player Bud Powell. It introduces a few new features including adding emoticons to your posts, easier embeds from more content like Tumblr, additional character support for many languages and a few behind the scenes additions for our friendly WordPress administrators.
As usual, during the break, we like to update everything on our little corner of the blogosphere. This week was no different.
Security fixes were the order of the day so you will not see any changes in your blog look/feel but we are now running WP 3.3.2 and all our themes and plugins are up-to-date.
This site was upgraded to the latest version of WordPress (version 3.3) over the week of Finals. The main changes are:
- A slightly redesigned sidebar
- A new admin bar along the top of the page
- new drag-and-drop uploader
- and, hover menus for the navigation
Also, the dashboard is improved if accessing from an iPad as well as some changes with the responsive web design of the entire site.
Here are few videos that show some of the changes:
