This video will demonstrate some of the new features, starring our professional actors:
This release will be so far known as “Oscar”. This is to be in memory of the great jazz pianist Oscar Peterson. We will present to you some more information on several new features. You can also find them in the “About” page in your panel after you have upgraded.
- The fresh Twenty Thirteen theme, which takes great inspirations from the modern art, will surely make your site content-focused with a flashy and single-column design built for media-rich blogging.
- Every change in your site will be recorded and saved with the Revamped Revisions that will also allow you to check through all the changes to your site, seeing line-by-line who changed what and when.
- If there is more than one author working on a post in your site, here is where the Post Locking &Augmented Autosave present themselves. The autosave stream is now allocated to each of the authors, making the data storage both locally and on the server, making it easier to work on your own stuff and harder to lose anything. The features also provide an interface for taking over the editing of a post, as shown in the video above.
- Native video and audio embeds are played within the site, without the help of any external services any more, using the Built-in HTML5 media player.
- The Menu Editor is now very easy-to-understand and user-friendly.
- New video/audio API grants you access to metadata such as ID3 tags
- Things like comments, comment lists, search forms, and such like can now be in HTML5 markup.
- Revisions come with greater filters. Different amounts of history for different post types are available.
