All of the great features that were introduced when the first beta was released in the first half of October have been tweaked and hundreds of bugs were fixed.
New features include:
- Fly out admin menus to help with menu crowding in the admin bar.
- Improved admin bar (i.e. the bar at the top of every page).
- Pointers that allow developers to place information boxes in areas where you will need help.
- An improved media uploader that allows you to drag and drop files into the uploader.
- The %postname% permalink performance issue has been addressed.
- Improved co-editing support.
- New Tumblr importer.
- Improved dashboard experience and touch support for iPad and other tablets.
A quick preview of this latest version of WordPress, named ‘Sonny’ in honor of the great jazz saxophonist Sonny Stitt, can be seen in the video below.
I encourage you all to upgrade to 3.3 when you have time. As always, make sure you have backed up all your database and all of your files just in case something goes wrong in the installation process and you need to revert back to the last working version.
