    It’s that time again – thanks for the heads up Jeff.
    I’ll wait for the auto updates to arrive.

    What I really miss is dedicated work on the Front-End Editor. The development is even on hold :-(

      Yeah, work has pretty much stopped on that front. In about a week or two, there will likely be a discussion on feature plugins to consider for 4.2. I’ll try and make the meeting and ask on the status of Front End Editor as a lot of people are looking forward to using it.

    There have also been several improvements to the Customizer API
    Are there any new Customizer features from what was added in WordPress 4.0 or you´re talking about those?

    The language packs are really cool. Now you can have a multi-lingual website without having to use a plugin.

    Was the JSON API included in this release? I can’t find any info about it, but thought it was supposed to be released in 4.1.

    Wasn’t distraction-free mode already available? Looks like they added a few buttons, but hardly a major feature to tout in this release. It was basically already there in WordPress. Why is this so special? It’s hard to get excited when everything is under the hood and a few shiny gimmicks are tacked-on. I hope 4.2 will have something substantial to crow about. Front-side editing would be a good start.

      Yes, it was already available, but it’s been revamped and that’s why it’s touted as a new feature more or less versus a small enhancement. I understand the feeling that 4.1 is more incremental in terms of updates but it’s an improvement none the less.

      I’m looking forward to 4.2 but with a look at the Feature Plugins list, I don’t see anything that will be ready to be merged in the 4.2 dev cycle. https://make.wordpress.org/core/features-as-plugins/ Unfortunately, Front End Editor development is on hold.

    Thanks for the heads up Jeff. The one click update worked fine for me – do you have a sense how many people take the belt braces approach by backing up their database before clicking the update button as WP advise? Or do you think the majority hit and hope?

    I’m really excited about new pagination & navigation functions. That’s super cool. Btw I made a video review for russian-speaking audience if anyone is interested: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3zPoLCmopA.

    I’ve noticed since updating that when I go to “add media” I can no longer post just a single photo. The only options are to create a gallery. Do you know how to change this?

    To me, as a blogger, any major release is an excitement. I’m glad that WordPress makes it more and more easy for blogger to play with our blogs.
    I don’t usually see the same excitement from developers though :)
    Oh, I made an infographic to better visualize the new features in WordPress 4.1 here: http://goo.gl/jO6XKX

    Just updated to 4.1 and right off the bat I noticed that the text in the editor is different. The sucks balls, I was use to writing in the other editor’s text style and size.

    Where can I lodge my complaints, and get a refund?

    Just kidding on that last comment :)

    What I was meant to say was: any way of changing the text editor style? or should I stop being a sook and just get use to it?
