WordPress 3.3 “Sonny” Officially Released!
A few hours ago, version 3.3 of WordPress, named “Sonny” (in honor of jazz saxophonist legend Sonny Stitt), was officially released! There are some cool new features in WordPress 3.3, including a drag and drop media upload box. Just drag files right from your computer into the media upload box in your dashboard and the files will automatically be uploaded. Pretty neat. Navigation through your dashboard also looks better than ever with some slick new pop out menus (no need to expand each menu section, just hover over it to see the pop out menu). If you’re new to WordPress you’ll find it easier than ever to get started with the expanded help system in WordPress 3.3.
Another improvement in WordPress 3.3 is the way permalinks are handled. Basically, the potential performance issue from certain permalink structures has been eliminated. I’ll be updating my posts on permalinks soon to reflect this improvement to WordPress.
The official announcement of WordPress version 3.3 from Matt Mullenweg is posted on WordPress.org. Also, here’s the official video from WordPress.org with some of the new features in WordPress 3.3:
Don’t forget to backup your site before installing this update! Enjoy WordPress 3.3!
