WordPress 4.3 is Out

WordPress 4.3 Released


There is a new version of WordPress out today:

WordPress 4.3 “Billie” (wordpress.org)

Version 4.3 of WordPress, named “Billie” in honor of jazz singer Billie Holiday, is available for download or update in your WordPress dashboard. New features in 4.3 make it even easier to format your content and customize your site.

This is mainly a features upgrade but everyone should upgrade to stay current.

Here are some more features / upgrades:

Version 4.3 (codex.wordpress.org)

  • Resetting Your Password received attention and 4.3 improves the way that passwords are chosen and changed. You start out with a strong password by default and you are given the option to keep it or choose your own. A password strength meter is available as well as the option to hide your password from prying eyes. You will find the new password interface on the password reset screen and the WordPress install screen. WordPress will no longer send passwords via email and the password reset links will expire in 24 hours. Finally, e-mail notifications will be sent out in the event that an e-mail or password is changed.
  • Site owners can now manage their site’s favicon on desktop and mobile. Site Icons work out of the box, are theme independent, and do not require theme support.
  • Multisite Focused Changes
  • The main change to the Editor is that the content for both Visual and Text editors is prepared/escaped the same (we run the textarea content through the JavaScript wpautop() before initializing TinyMCE).
  • Comments are now turned off on pages and custom post types by default.

Our Website Maintenance Department will be in contact with you regarding these upgrades. Clients that have signed up for our Automatic WordPress Update Program will get their website updated promptly.
