WordPress 3.3 Goes Live to the Public – What’s New?

The updated version of WordPress, WordPress 3.3, called the Sonny is now open to the public. This new version rolled out to the public on December 12, 2011, dedicates it’s name to American jazz saxophonist, Sonny Stitt.


When logged in, WordPress users using the previous version of WordPress, will now find a toolbar at the top notifying the admin to update to this latest version, WordPress 3.3. Also, users can download this latest version directly from the WordPress site at WordPress > Download

Sized at 3.8 MB, this updated version features a lot new changes that please the eyes of both the user and the developers. This updated version seems to have undergone a few changes in the dashboard design, media uploading and content tools sections.

#1 Updated Dashboard

Sonny, features a brand new toolbar that seems to be a combination of both the admin bar and the header bar from the previous WordPress version. When hovered over the buttons, users can find a drop down list popping on the screen, which makes navigation a lot more easier. Jumping to any page is now really easy with this new toolbar. Also, WordPress 3.3 seems to have undergone considerable changes with the tablet support.

#2 Updated Media Uploader

Uploading media is now more fun than ever. The addition of drag and drop media uploader and the single upload button are the key changes, that this new version sports. Unlike the previous versions, people will be surprised to find only one upload button which works as well as the previous three.

#3 Content Tools

It also highlights the option for better co-editing that releases post locks immediately. This all new version, now has got a new Tumblr support that lets you import content from Tumblr. Also, WordPress users now need not worry about losing widgets while changing themes. With this all new updated version in your hands, changing themes is now a error free job.
