Very recently, a new official release of WordPress CMS (Content Management System) finally available to all WordPress users known as WordPress 3.6 Oscar. Now, the WordPress users can upgrade their blog’s WordPress version from 3.5.2 to the new WordPress 3.6 Oscar. The latest WordPress version 3.6 named as “Oscar” is now live to the world. Which includes many new features such as new blog-centric theme, a bullet-proof auto-saving, post locking, a revamped revision browser, native support for audio and video embeds, and improved integrations with Spotify, Rdio, and SoundCloud.
Here comes a video that shows off some of the best features using our cast of professional actors:
Top Features for WordPress Users
1. WordPress 3.6 Oscar brings you the most adorable good-looking new default theme called Twenty Thirteen which is unlike any other default themes before. Well, this Twenty Thirteen WordPress theme is a little bit bolder and colourful. It’s developed to showcase the power of post formats and all new features of WordPress 3.6 Oscar. This default theme is come up with responsive mobile friendly design, so that it can be accessible by mobile users.
2. Revamped Revisions save every change and the new interface allows you to scroll easily through changes to see line-by-line who changed what and when.
3. Post Locking and Augmented Autosave will especially be a boon to sites where more than a single author is working on a post. Each author now has their own autosave stream, which stores things locally as well as on the server (so much harder to lose something) and there’s an interface for taking over editing of a post, as demonstrated beautifully by our bearded buddies in the video above.
4. WordPress 3.6 Oscar gives you a built-in HTML5 media player for native audio and video embeds with no reliance on external services.
5. The Menu Editor is now much easier to understand and use.
