WordPress 4.9 “Tipton” Released

The WordPress content management system (CMS) has just released their next minor revision release, version 4.9 named “Tipton”.  The tag line for this release should be: “designer collaboration”.  Some features and highlights of the latest release include:

  • Draft and Schedule site design changes, not just post/page publishing.
  • Design preview links – easily share you latest work with collaborators before it goes live
  • Design locking ensure that two designer can’t clobber each other’s changes when working at the same time.
  • Easily add media (images or video) to your widgets (sidebar, footer, etc.)
  • Better menu creation – they’ve fixed the user-interface to make managing multiple menu structures more intuitive.

No wonder WordPress continues to be the most popular tool for creating great looking websites.
