Work on WordPress 3.6 commenced in January this year, and with Beta 3 being announced on 11th May 2013, we can expect a Release Candidate and hopefully the final stable release in June. This release is an exciting development for a number of reasons.
First, there’s the focus on Post Formats – a feature introduced since WordPress 3.1 but not widely used. Secondly, there are also improvements to the editing process, as well as the introduction of a new default theme which is a significant change from previous default themes.
Unlike the past few releases, WordPress 3.6 feels more significant – there’s a lot to look forward to.
