WordPress 3.4 is here and out the door. We’ve dubbed this release “Green” in honor of guitarist Grant Green whose soulful simplicity has kept many of us company during this release.
This release includes significant improvements to theme customization, custom headers, Twitter embeds, and image captions
The biggest change in 3.4 is the theme customizer which allows you to play around with various looks and settings for your current theme or one you’re thinking about switching to without publishing those changes to the whole world. For themes that support it, you can change colors, backgrounds, and of course custom image headers. We have more planned for the customizer down the road.
Are the theme customizer, custom header API and so forth a first shot across the Thesis/Flexibility/etc bow? That is, are the customize-by-click features of some premium themes getting integrated into the core distro?
I have not checked them out. I have used 3.3x versions. Nice work with new features but frequent change is also an fear that we remain outdated and not using a version for some time as a stable and successful version.
