New WordPress 3.8 Parker release

New WordPress 3.8 Parker release

WordPress weblog/cms version 3.8 Parker release


Version 3.8 of WordPress, named “Parker” in honor of Charlie Parker, bebop innovator, is available for download or update in your WordPress dashboard. We hope you’ll think this is the most beautiful update yet.

New WordPress weblog/cms version 3.8 Parker release. The new WordPress dashboard has a fresh, uncluttered design that embraces clarity and simplicity.

WordPress has gotten a facelift. 3.8 brings a fresh new look to the entire admin dashboard. Gone are overbearing gradients and dozens of shades of grey — bring on a bigger, bolder, more colorful design!

Modern aesthetic
The new WordPress dashboard has a fresh, uncluttered design that embraces clarity and simplicity.

Clean typography
The Open Sans typeface provides simple, friendly text that is optimized for both desktop and mobile viewing. It’s even open source, just like WordPress.

Refined contrast
We think beautiful design should never sacrifice legibility. With superior contrast and large, comfortable type, the new design is easy to read and a pleasure to navigate.

Turn your blog into a magazine
Create a beautiful magazine-style site with WordPress and Twenty Fourteen. Choose a grid or a slider to display featured content on your homepage. Customize your site with three widget areas or change your layout with two page templates.

With a striking design that does not compromise our trademark simplicity, Twenty Fourteen is our most intrepid default theme yet.

Beginning of a new era
This release was led by Matt Mullenweg. This is our second release using the new plugin-first development process, with a much shorter timeframe than in the past. We think it’s been going great. You can check out the features currently in production on the make/core blog.

    Yes – I like it. I’m finding the dashboard takes longer to load, and the widget panel especially takes long – though I’m not sure whether it’s my connection that’s the problem…

    • Berrie Pelser 16 december 2013 om 16:22

      Yeah there some bugs still I would not upgrade Live sites till 3.8.1 😉

      • stewartmar 16 december 2013 om 17:33

        I usually wait a few months when new Apple hardware and operating systems are released, but with WP I have it set to automatic update so get them immediately. Eventhough it might mean a few bugs, I prefer to be safe on the security side 🙂

    Great post… We chose to hold off on our upgrade for now, although it is quite beautiful 🙂

    • Berrie Pelser 16 december 2013 om 16:43

      We did too, we alway’s wait at least till the 0.1 version, but my test weblogs are working fine on 3.8.0 😉

    Thanks for the update advice! Switched my blog to Twenty Fourteen and loving it so far…

  27. Roberta H 17 december 2013 om 01:50

    I think it is UGLY! The black menu looks like death and is difficult to read. Everything else is too scattered. Things do not flow. Did not think anyone could make a site more ugly than Mail Chimp. WP did. 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁
