WordPress 4.0 “Benny”

I’m a little late to the party, but I wanted to mention that WordPress 4.0 “Benny” was released last week. As of writing this post, it’s been downloaded a total of 2,527,700 times.

The release revolved around polishing the way we manage and create content. There are a lot of things to love about 4.0, including my favorite new feature: previewing of embeds within posts and pages.

I played small role in a lot of different small design tasks during the release, including:

  • The design for the new plugin “cards”
  • Minor design tweaks to the new media grid and media grid attachment modal
  • A small Dashicons update
  • The design for the “About” page

If you’re already running WordPress, be sure to update your sites to 4.0.
