Just a quick heads up for those who are WordPress plugin and theme development or anyone who are into testing WordPress beta releases. The dev team just released WordPress 4.4 Beta 4 earlier today and is now available for download.
With less than a month to go before the scheduled release of WordPress 4.4, the dev team is working hard to iron out all the issues and squash all the bugs. They will be needing all the help they can get and that’s what ordinary users like you and me can help – testing the beta releases.
In case you missed the previous announcements or posts about the development of WordPress 4.4, below are some of the changes and new features that will be included in the final release:
<title>output – wp_title() is now deprecated; WordPress can handle the rendering of the document title automatically.
If you think that you have discovered a bug, please report it to the Alpha/Beta area in the official WordPress support forums.
Don’t forget, this release – WordPress 4.4 Beta 4 is a development release and is for testing purposes only. It is not intended to be used on live or production sites. If you need to try it out, make sure you install and test it on a sandbox (test installation).
