The latest and greatest WordPress, version 3.6, is now live to the world and includes a beautiful new blog-centric theme, bullet-proof autosave and post locking, a revamped revision browser, native support for audio and video embeds, and improved integrations with Spotify, Rdio, and SoundCloud.

autosave would be greatly improved if it had an easy way to delete revisions. When I spend an hour writing a post my database gets the honor of saving a dozen copies of my page which is needless load after a few hundred posts.

I'm off to download it and crossing my fingers.

Did you know you can add a single line of code and limit the number of revisions WordPress keeps?

...and suddenly I can't see a More tag in the Visual editing tab. I could before updating, can't now. Good job, guys!

Thank goodness I'm getting a custom CMS made! Can't wait until it's ready to launch! :)

Curious about why you would want to do that given the choice of so many content management solutions ; WordPress, Drupal, Joomla etc.

Probably a conflict with a plugin, theme or custom code on your site.. (I manage several WP installs now running "Oscar" and -more- tags are all ok)....

@JS_Harris

There is some plugin that will automatically delete old revisions as per config.

The only change I made was to update the version. That's all. It probably is a conflict, but this is one of the many reasons I want a custom CMS. I don't need to take the time to hunt down precisely which element of which plugin or theme function is suddenly not completely compatible with 3.6. Rather than try to figure out which bit of code from which of 33 different programmers, none of which have any incentive to help me solve my problem, I'll just have one programmer in charge of keeping stuff working.

And I'll have much lighter code than any open source CMS can offer because my CMS will only include the features I need instead of having to try to please millions.
