The new version of WordPress (4.9) was released today, codenamed “Tipton” after jazz musician Billy Tipton.

It includes design drafts, scheduling & locking, preview links and the Customizer workflow improves collaboration for content creators.

What’s more, code syntax highlighting and error checking will make for a clean and smooth site building experience and there’s an awesome new Gallery widget and improvements to theme browsing and switching.

Finally, it even includes a bug fix by our own lead developer David Anderson!

As always, if you’re using the free UdpraftPlus remember to backup before you update the core as updating can ruin your site!  Or upgrade to UpdraftPlus Premium to back up automatically before any updates.
