The new edition of wordpress, which is WordPress 3.4 is out and is available for download on its website. This new version of wordpress is labeled as Green. The “Green” term has nothing to do with the environment friendly or green power. It is labeled as ‘Green’ in honor of guitarist Grant Green whose soulful simplicity has kept many of us company during this release.
There are significant improvements to theme customization, custom headers, Twitter embeds, and image caption in this release.
The biggest change that will notice in 3.4 is the theme customizer which allows you to play around with various looks and settings for your current theme or one you’re thinking about switching to without publishing those changes to the whole world. For themes that support it, you can change colors, backgrounds, and of course custom image headers.
There are also some tweaks in the admin panel. If you have lots of themes, then also you can quickly browse them all at once without paging. Now it is possible to use images from your media library to populate custom headers, and for you to choose the height and width of your header images.
Wordpress has expanded it’s embed support to include tweets: just put a Twitter permalink on its own line in the post editor and we’ll turn it into a beautiful embedded Tweet. And finally, image captions have been improved to allow HTML, like links, in them.
