It was just two months ago when WordPress 3.6 was released, and we already have WordPress 3.7 almost ready to go. It is scheduled to be released on October 14th, 2013. There are some important changes coming your way. WordPress 3.7 will be mainly focused on security and stability of the WordPress core. Let’s take a look at what new features are coming in WordPress 3.7.
WordPress 3.7 will also come with better support for language packs. The current goal set for WordPress 3.7 is to separately maintain language files for default themes, importer plugins, and the WordPress core. For users, this means that if you are 以您的语言使用 WordPress, then with each update WordPress will automatically fetch the language files for default themes, importer plugins, and the core.
Currently users need to find a 翻译就绪 WordPress 主题 and install language files. Hopefully, this feature will extend to other themes and plugins, so users will not have to worry about downloading and uploading translation files for each plugin they use.
Strong password are important for WordPress 安全. This is why WordPress comes with a password strength meter, but it is very weak. This is why in WordPress 3.7, the core team decided to add a new password meter that will encourage users to choose stronger passwords.
Thankfully, with WordPress 3.7 the default search will get a 小的 better. WordPress will now display search results by relevancy rather than in a reverse chronological order. It will consider a result more relevant if the keyword matches in title as well as content.
As an open source software WordPress 是免费的 and the source code is available for anyone to use, modify, study and build upon. All WordPress code was already documented, but there are many new hooks available.
WordPress 3.7 is currently in Beta, and there is very little chance that any new features will be added to it. However it is still possible that the final release can be different. If you want to try the beta version, then you can do so by 在本地服务器环境中安装WordPress and run the Beta 测试仪插件.
