WordPress 3.7 Released

wp-logo-stackedThis is the new, major release from WordPress.  Here’s the official blog post from Matt Mullenweg (creator of WordPress).

New Features in WordPress 3.7

  • Automatic updates for maintenance and security releases (i.e. non-major releases)
  • Stronger password recommendations
  • Better global support

Probably the most significant feature in this release is the automatic updates, which means you (or your web designer/developer) would not have to do anything to apply a new security release.  This is of huge importance since it can help keep your website safer from hacker-types and malicious software by applying needed security updates as soon as they are available.

The stronger password recommendations feature is also a nice addition since it will encourage WordPress users to have stronger, more secure passwords, also important for maintaining a secure WordPress site.
