WordPress 3.5 (beta 1) is released

Post 22 of 262

A few days ago, the first beta version of WordPress 3.5 was released. As always, it introduces a number of new features. And as always, it is not recommended for use on live websites while since it is still an early beta version. Still, it may be worth checking out if you are a plugin developer or theme designer. I have tested it with all my WordPress themes to make sure that the themes will work once the final version of WordPress 3.5 is released. So far, I haven’t seen any problems, other than the fact that some of the newer features features are not supported. This shouldn’t cause any problems for existing sites, but it is worth keeping in mind.

More WordPress…

While on the topic, I would like to recommend a really good article written by Jesse Friedman for .NET magazine. It is called 20 common WordPress mistakes, myths and misgivings, and it provides a list of common errors and some arguments against using WordPress as a website engine, as well as some useful tips. In practice, it is short but very well-written list of why WordPress is well worth considering no matter what kind of website you are planning to build. Jesse Friedman is also the author of Web Designers Guide to WordPress, a book which I still haven’t read but which I have seen positive reviews about.

WordCamp Stockholm 2012

On October 22nd 2012, I am planning to attend WordCamp Stockholm 2012 at the Waterfront Congress Centre in central Stockholm, to watch a number of presentations and meet up with other WordPress users and developers. I will be there as a regular guest, not as a speaker. Come and say hi if you are attending!

Anyone opting for CMS is often chooses wordpress. Despite repeated attempts to subdue it did not convince me. Maybe it’s because I’m not a developer and I can’t understand how it works – I has never tried to understand and learn. Compatibility your template is good news for all wordpress users. I miss those dedicated to SPIP although a few old themes was adapted into SPIP.
