This month I’m happy to announce that all WordPress customers have been updated to WordPress 3.4.1. This update wasn’t as quick as previous versions of WordPress due to plugin incompatibility issues with WordPress 3.4, which prevented me from updating all WordPress websites.
WordPress 3.4 was codenamed, “Green” in honour of guitarist Grant Green. WordPress say that its his, “soulful simplicity’ that kept many of the developers company during this code update.
WordPress 3.4 changes
WordPress 3.4 was released on June 13th
- Theme Customiser/Live Preview: Test out a new theme and change its look and feel without making the change live (for themes that support this)
- Twitter Embeds: Simply add a Twitter permalink on its own line in the post editor and WordPress will turn it into an embedded Tweet
- HTML captions: Image captions have been improved to allow HTML
- Under the hood amends: WP_Query has had a performance overhaul and the WordPress translation system has been improved

WordPress 3.4.1 changes
- Fixes an issue where a theme’s page templates were sometimes not detected.
- Addresses problems with some category permalink structures.
- Adds early support for uploading images on iOS 6 devices.
- Allows for a technique commonly used by plugins to detect a network-wide activation.
- Better compatibility with servers running certain versions of PHP (5.2.4, 5.4) or with uncommon setups (safe mode, open_basedir), which had caused warnings or in some cases prevented emails from being sent
