WordPress 4.6 has been released, named "Pepper Adams" in honor of jazz baritone saxophonist Park Frederick “Pepper” Adams III (the different versions have been named after jazz artists.)
A lot of the changes are under the hood where you might not notice, but some of the things that may stand out to you include:
- Streamlined Updates - when you update, install, or delete plugins, you no longer have to navigate away from the page (much easier to not get lost!)
- More support for native fonts - the dashboard now takes advantage of fonts you already have in your system, which will make using WordPress feel more integrated with whatever device you're using it on.
- Improvements to the Auto-Save feature, and the link tool in the visual editor.
