Version 4.9 of WordPress, named “Tipton” in honor of jazz musician and band leader Billy Tipton, has been released today. New features in 4.9 will smooth your design workflow and keep you safe from coding errors.
Featuring design drafts, scheduling, and locking, along with preview links, the Customizer workflow improves collaboration for content creators. What’s more, code syntax highlighting and error checking will make for a clean and smooth site building experience. Finally, if all that wasn’t pretty great, we’ve got an awesome new Gallery widget and improvements to theme browsing and switching.
All hosted customers have been updated to the newest version of WordPress 🙂 . If you are interested in all of the exciting new changes in this version please check out the official WordPress blog post.
