WordPress 3.9 is coming soon / by Michel Lubac

WordPress 3.9 is nearing the station. It’s now time to start identifying and squashing some bugs.  Several major changes that will be important to know:

  • More polished versions of the live widget previews and the new theme installer
  • UI refinements when editing images and when working with media in the editor, including the reinstatement of some of the advanced image display settings
  • Audio and video playlists – links will appear in the media manager once you’ve uploaded an audio or video file.
  • HTML5 caption support (#26642) to match the new gallery support (#26697)
  • Performance updates for the formatting function that turns straight quotes into smart quotes (among other things)
