WordPress 3.8 RC1 has been released

Yesterday WordPres 3.8 RC1 has been released, so I expect to release the stable 3.8 version in a few days. This version brings several following features/modifications: The new admin design, which will be fully responsive, color schemes of the backend will be added to your profile settings, also the dashboard homepage has been refreshed   Widget area chooser allows you to simply click a widget and choose where it goes   Choosing themes under Appearance is completely different   There’s a new default theme, Twenty Fourteen   Screen options are changed or removed   WordPress News/Plugins/Blog is condensed into 1 widget called “WordPress News” and much more… If you’re used to the old view of your backend, you may experience slight shock after installing 3.8 version, as the appearance is flatter, with more contrasting colors. If the color scheme does not satisfy you, of course you may always change it in your profile settings. Al in all, I am happy with the changes and the new look – generally, most of the basic functions remained in their places, they are just visually refreshed. You can download WordPress 3.8 RC1 here or use the WordPress Beta Tester plugin (choose “bleeding edge nightlies” option from Tools -> Beta Testing).
