WPWeekly Episode 146 – WordPress 3.9 With Andrew Nacin

In this weeks edition of WordPress Weekly, we discussed several topics with WordPress lead developer Andrew Nacin. Ever since the release of WordPress 3.7, many have questioned why auto updates are turned on by default for minor and security updates. Nacin described the philosophy behind the auto update system and why the team will be sticking with its current implementation.

We also learned the details behind the release of a major security update to Jetpack. Last but not least, Nacin describes what it was like to lead the release of 3.9 and what he’ll be focusing on now that he won’t be leading a release cycle.

Stories Discussed:

WordPress 3.9 “Smith” Released
WordPress 3.9 Has Built-In Support for Pasting from Microsoft Word
BuddyPress 2.0 Released: Big Performance Improvements and New Administration Tools
