WordPress 4.1 Rolling Out Today – Are You Ready?

Today, 12/18, WordPress 4.1 will be rolling out and show up as an alert in your dashboard. This update will come with:

  • Distraction Free Writing Mode – the updated distraction free mode allows easier switching between normal and distraction free mode (which is a mode that let’s you focus on just your content, not all the options).
  • Inline Image Editing – An easier way to align your image in the visual mode of the editor.
  • A New Default Theme – Twenty Fifteen, the new default theme, features a horizontal navigation and other new features. If you already use a custom or premium theme, you probably won’t be using this.
  • Language Packs – If you are using WordPress in another language (other than English), you can now change the default language from the admin area.
  • Other Developer Tools – API and query improvements will make WordPress even more powerful for developers and users.
