I get a lot of question regarding the new update for WordPress. So I decide that I would create this blog to highlight some of the new features that I like and use on the site.
- New Workflow for Managing Media - Simpler, more intuitive ways to work with images, video, and other media on your blog. Add media files with a single button, drag-and-drop media files, organize your galleries, and add captions on the fly.
- More Options for Embedding Media – Add Instagram, SoundCloud, and Slideshare links directly in your blog posts. No embed code necessary! Https links are now allowed, making it easy to embed Vimeo files too.
- New Device-Responsive Theme - With Twenty Twelve, a mobile-first device responsive theme, your blog looks good on any device, especially on smartphones and tablets.
- Streamlined Dashboard - High-resolution graphics and a cleaner, more task-focused look. Privacy Settings and Search Engine Visibility are now located on the dashboard’s Reading screen.
- Blogroll Widget Discontinued for New Blogs - The Blogroll widget is still available for blogs created before this upgrade. For blogs created using WordPress 3.5, create your own blogroll using a Custom Menu and the Custom Menu widget.
- Improved Accessibility - Your blog now works better with screen readers, touch devices, and keyboards.
- Performance Improvements - Improved WordPress loading time.
