WordPress 4.0 Release Date: One Week and Counting

Is your site ready to upgrade to WordPress 4.0? The update is planned to come out next week if all things go to plan. The release candidate (the version that goes out in the official release) was released today.

If you have plugins that are out of date, we suggest updating them before doing the core WordPress update. This ensures new versions of the plugins are compatible with the new version of WordPress (if the plugin had any conflicts). Of course, make sure to make a backup of your site before updating when it is released next week.
