Save the date, Wordpress 4.6 coming Tuesday, August 16
Posted by Brendan D on 01 August 2016 03:36 PM

Wordpress 4.6 is coming with a swag of improvements!

Shiny Updates in WordPress 4.6

This will make the update screen of apps a little cleaner without the distracting redirection screens.

Native System Fonts in WordPress Admin Area

Wordpress will go back to using their own fonts instead of using a third-party font in the admin area which increased the load time.

These are the system fonts that will be used in WordPress admin area on different platforms and environments.

  • Apple-system for Safari and Firefox on macOS and iOS
  • Helvetica Neue on macOS prior to 10.11
  • BlinkMacSystemFont for Google Chrome on macOS
  • Segoe UI for Windows
  • Roboto for Android and Chrome OS
  • Oxygen-Sans for KDE
  • Ubuntu for Ubuntu
  • Cantarell for GNOME
  • sans-serif, the standard fallback

Note: This change only affects the UI elements of WordPress admin area. It will not content areas like post editor which uses your theme’s editor stylesheet for fonts.

 

Editor Improvements in 4.6

 

  • Improved Auto save in Post editor
  • Highlights of broken links in post.

 

And there will be more under the hood improvements in Wordpress to make it safer and faster!

 

Remember to login into your Wordpress site on Tuesday, August 16 and update.
