About 3 days ago, WordPress just released Version 4.3 which they nicknamed as “Billie” in honor of jazz singer Billie Holiday. The update is now is available for download. Self hosted WordPress sites can simply update from their dashboard.
The latest WordPress version features tools that make it even more easier to customise your site with features such as the all new Menu Customiser, Formatting shortcuts (Now doing lists is much more easier with a # or *) and an interface to upload your site favicon, helping reinforce your site brand.
Aside from the above, the latest WordPress features a smoother admin experience making WordPress more accessible and easier to work with on any device. Comments are turned off on pages and the new update lets you customize your site quickly by simply clicking “customize” in the toolbar whenever you are in the front end.
