A Preview of WordPress 3.4 Beta 1

WordPress 3.4 Beta 1The release of 3.4 is around the corner, sometime in May. It has some great new features, especially around the theme options. In this video I will show you the major features using the Beta 1 version. On the WordPress.org blog they list them as this:

  • Theme Customizer with Previewer
  • Flexible Custom Header Sizes
  • Selecting Custom Header and Background Images from Media Library
  • Better experience searching for and choosing a theme

I must admit though I didn’t find the feature claiming flexible header sizes. So we’ll see when that is clarified.

Also, for you developers, which I didn’t include in this video, under the hood you will also find:

  • New XML-RPC API for external and mobile applications
  • New API for registering theme support for custom headers and backgrounds
  • Performance improvements to WP_Query by splitting the query (Please test!)
  • Internationalization improvements (improved performance and locale support)
  • Performance and API improvements when working with lists of installed themes

So enjoy the video and feel free to share your thoughts or comments on the new features.
