Welcome to WordPress 4.7

This is the latest version of WordPress – called “Vaughn” after jazz singer Sarah Vaughn.

The biggest changes our bloggers will see is the new addition of Oembed codes for Facebook posts/activities/photo/ videos/media/questions/notes. Simply copy/paste the URL into a post and it will embed. This already works for YouTube, Twitter, Vimeo and others. Facebook joins the club.

Also, there is a new theme: Twenty Seventeen. From the WordPress Codex folks:

It is an ambitious theme designed for business websites that focuses on a creative home page and an easy site setup experience for users (read more 1 and 2).
  • multiple sections on the front page, selected in the Customizer.
  • a striking asymmetrical grid.
  • custom color schemes, built on top of a monochromatic foundation, and adjustable via a hue picker.
  • different headline placement for pages, changeable in the Customizer, via them options.
  • a great experience in many languages, thanks to language-specific font stacks.
  • SVG icons (a first for a default theme).
  • support for custom logo, custom header image and many post formats.
