Ya, you heard the right. WordPress has rolled out its latest version 3.5 called Elvin yesterday. TrickSmash has updated to version 3.5 from old 3.4.2. The overall appearance are changed and I think it’s the most trendy update yet.
WordPress 3.5 comes with a load of change logs which you can see below. It’s more mobile friendly now. We couldn’t make use of all options in /wp-admin panel from mobile browsers like Opera Mini. But through this update, we can separately edit or see the whole configurations in category wise.
This update was more concentrated on gallery bug fixes like image uploading, media links etc. Hereafter, the gallery functions are made super fast and feather light. Now you can even upload an image from your mobile phone or add an external link to the post ultra fast.
Also WordPress has rolled out latest version of twenty xxxx theme. This time we can see the whole new, responsive, typographical supported Twenty Twelve theme. The theme got a whole new look when compared to Twenty Ten and Twenty Eleven.
