WordPress 3.3 ‘Sonny’ Adds New Features

WordPress, is a popular blogging platform – its latest and greatest version is has finally released. Previously, WordPress 3.2 happened to be a great hit with 14 million downloads. Now the latest version 3.3 named ‘Sonny’ is imminently available for download or update inside WordPress dashboard. The new version is codenamed ‘Sonny’ in an honor of the jazz saxophonist ‘Sonny Stitt’.

Since the release of version 3.0, the WordPress has seen more than 65 million downloads. With each newer version, the software is getting improved with new features and enhancements. The latest version is a result of five months of hard work and released with a number of new features, updates and improved contextual help user interface.

The first most obvious change that you will notice is its redesigned dashboard, which sports new menus and toolbars to make things simple and easy for the users, particularly with smaller screens.

The latest version also includes call-outs and pointers for new users and a better contextual help UI. The media manager also receives a new and more streamlined media uploader with drag-and-drop image uploading.

It seems that the focus of developers is very much on to improve and refine the existing features and functionality for the developers rather than introducing a bundle of new features.

As for the WordPress 3.3 version, the developers get a new API editor for improved integration with the core WordPress post and page editor. The latest version also features updated versions of jQuery and jQuery UI.

A good number of developers have already updated their personal sites to the latest ‘Sonny’ version of the WordPress and enjoying the new admin toolbar and an impressive layout of the side navigation menus.

We hope that the future versions of the WordPress will launch with stronger management and search system. Until now download or update to latest version and feel the difference yourself.
