WordPress 4.7 to drop later today


The latest version of WordPress will be available for update later today.

WordPress 4.7 includes improvements to the Customiser, text editor enhancements, and a brand new default theme, Twenty Seventeen.

For developers, highlights include REST API endpoints being merged into core, and the template system now working with custom post types.

All major WordPress releases are named after jazz legends and this version is no different. WordPress 4.7 is named Vaughan, after singer Sarah “Sassy” Vaughan.
