The release of WordPress 4.1 is imminent. By now, you should have already been testing and preparing your plugins and themes. I wanted to highlight a couple of posts here over the last few months on changes in WordPress 4.1. This is by no means a complete summary of everything that has changed, but will give you a sense of what you have coming to you in the next few days.
This version of WordPress features some new template tags in a continued attempt to improve core’s Theme APIs.
Taxonomy, Date, Meta and Comment queries all have been updated and improved.
As a part of the taxonomy roadmap, When a term is created with a matching slug as an existing term, we now create a new entry in wp_terms.
Distraction-free writing has received a full revamp.
Themes now can have better support for the <title> tag
Please continue testing your sites, plugins and themes. WordPress wouldn’t be where it is without you.
