WordPress 3.9 released

WordPress 3.9 has been released. The newest version of the WordPress blogging software introduces a number of great improvements and features. The theme of the new update is “closing the gap”. The WordPress 3.9 includes new developer features that will help WordPress plugin developers and WordPress theme creators better integrate into the WordPress software.

The updated visual editor has improved speed, accessibility, and mobile support. You can paste into the visual editor from your word processor without wasting time to clean up messy styling.

With quicker access to crop and rotation tools, it’s now much easier to edit your images while editing posts. You can also scale images directly in the editor to find just the right fit.
Drag and drop your images

Uploading your images is easier than ever. Just grab them from your desktop and drop them onto the editor.

Under the Hood
Semantic Captions and Galleries

Theme developers have new options for images and galleries that use intelligent HTML5 markup.
Inline Code Documentation

Every action and filter hook in WordPress is now documented, along with expanded documentation for the media manager and customizer APIs.
External Libraries

Updated libraries: TinyMCE 4, jQuery 1.11, Backbone 1.1, Underscore 1.6, Plupload 2, MediaElement 2.14, Masonry 3.
Improved Database Layer

Database connections are now more fault-resistant and have improved compatibility with PHP 5.5 and MySQL 5.6.
New Utility Functions

Identify a hook in progress with doing_action() and doing_filter(), and manipulate custom image sizes with has_image_size() and remove_image_size().

Plugins and themes registering custom image sizes can now register suggested cropping points. For example, prevent heads from being cropped out of photos with a top-center crop.

WordPress grows when people like you tell their friends about it, and the thousands of businesses and services that are built on and around WordPress share that fact with their users. We’re flattered every time someone spreads the good word, just make sure to check out our trademark guidelines first.

Every plugin and theme in WordPress.org’s directory is 100% GPL or a similarly free and compatible license, so you can feel safe finding plugins and themes there. If you get a plugin or theme from another source, make sure to ask them if it’s GPL first. If they don’t respect the WordPress license, we don’t recommend them.

WordPress is Free and open source software, built by a distributed community of mostly volunteer developers from around the world. WordPress comes with some awesome, worldview-changing rights courtesy of its license, the GPL.
