Wait Is Over – 3.6 Now Available For Download

After a long, frustrating, development cycle, WordPress 3.6 Oscar is now available to the public. This release doesn’t have the Post Formats UI but it does contain a number of great features such as built-in video and audio support, a completely revamped UI for Post Revisions, 2013 Theme that utilizes Post Formats, Post Locking and a slew of bug fixes. Congratulations to Mark Jaquith, Aaron D. Campbell and everyone else who helped to get this release to the public. I can’t imagine the sigh of relief they are breathing as well as the weight that’s been lifted off their shoulders. But! Considering what Matt laid out in his State Of The Word Presentation, it’s time to get moving on 3.7 and by the end of this year, 3.8. No rest for the wicked!

By the way if you encounter any problems with WordPress 3.6, please bookmark the following WordPress.org support thread as it will be updated as needed to known problems and fixes.

Can you name all the people in this promotional video for WordPress 3.6?

  1. Just upgraded! I’m excited to see the spotify embed support, I can make some good use of that. Now to wait for Genesis’ release.

  2. For some the tears of joy are going to be mixed liberally with tears of sadness. Not so much at the passing of previous versions now that v3.6 is here, not so much at the fact that v3.7 and v3.8 are going to follow hard on its heels and mean more learning processes, but over the loss – unheralded, unnoticed, unremarked in the long list of Improvements – of the spellchecker, that bastion of assistance so many people relied on in the past.

    Time to read what you write before publishing, folks!

  3. There goes my weekend. Upgrading 300 sites and making sure everything still works.

  4. Updating my comment above: the spellchecker has only disappeared on one of my sites, so perhaps the rest of the world will be lucky and be able to get their literary talents published without bothering to check and edit!
