Now available to update in your WordPress Dashboard
Version 4.6 of WordPress, named “Pepper” in honor of jazz baritone saxophonist Park Frederick “Pepper” Adams III, is available for download or update in your WordPress dashboard. New features in 4.6 help you to focus on the important things while feeling more at home.
What is New?
This is not a major release but there are some cool updates.
If you do your updates yourself then it is that bit easier as you are kept on the update while you update, install, and delete your plugins and themes.
The WordPress dashboard now takes advantage of the fonts you already have, making it load faster and letting you feel more at home on whatever device you use.
Inline Link Checker
WordPress now checks your links as you type them. So no more broken links because of typing errors.
As you type, WordPress saves your content to the browser. Recovering saved content is even easier with WordPress 4.6.
There are more “under the hood” updates but the ones above are the main ones that will affect users.
Conclusion: WordPress are working hard at making content creation as easy as possible without distractions and minimizing possible user error. This update goes some way to helping that goal.
