The bright new and shiny version – WordPress 3.8 – is available for download. As I mentioned previously, the biggest change is the reworked administration area that now scales well to smaller screens, like those of smartphones and tablets. It’s far from perfect, but at least it works now. I’m sure there will be more changes and improvements in the upcoming versions.
But that’s of course not the only change. The administration area has changed a lot – more contrast, different icons, improved typography, and now even with color schemes. Also, theme preview and management got changed quite a bit. With the new theme management interface, the screenshots are larger, which, unfortunately, makes them blur out a bit until theme developers will update with higher resolution versions.
