Well WordPress officially release a new version just now. Version 4.3, Bilie, named for jazz singer Billie Holiday. The wonderful Konstantin Oberland led this release. Though I am not involved much with core WordPress; my observations, and feedback I have seen and heard, tell me that he was on top of things and managed a superb release.
I have already updated this site and look forward to playing with the new features! So many wonderful features baked in to this release. Well, time to get to playing!
