WordPress 3.2 now available
Matt wrote this article on the 4th of July, it was originaly published on the Word press news blog.
I’m excited to announce that WordPress 3.2 is now available to the world, both as an update in your dashboard and a download on WordPress.org. Version 3.2 is our fifteenth major release of WordPress and comes just four months after 3.1 (which coincidentally just passed the 15 million download mark this morning), reflecting the growing speed of development in the WordPress community and our dedication to getting improvements in your hands as soon as possible. We’re dedicating this release to noted composer and pianist George Gershwin.
Before we get to the release, in anticipation of the State of the Word speech at the upcoming WordCamp San Francisco (the annual WordPress conference) we’re doing a survey or census of the WordPress world. If you have a moment, please fill out this survey and we’ll share what we learn by publishing the aggregate results in August.
The focus for this release was making WordPress faster and lighter. The first thing you’ll notice when you log in to 3.2 is a refreshed dashboard design that tightens the typography, design, and code behind the admin. (Rhapsody in Grey?) If you’re starting a new blog, you’ll also appreciate the fully HTML5 new Twenty Eleven theme, fulfilling our plan to replace the default theme every year. Start writing your first post in our redesigned post editor and venture to the full-screen button in the editing toolbar to enter the new distraction-free writing or zen mode, my personal favorite feature of the release. All of the widgets, menus, buttons, and interface elements fade away to allow you to compose and edit your thoughts in a completely clean environment conducive to writing, but when your mouse strays to the top of the screen your most-used shortcuts are right there where you need them. (I like to press F11 to take my browser full-screen, getting rid of even the OS chrome.) (…)

WordPress 3.1 has finally surfaced! Published on February 23, 2011
According to the official Word Press blog, published yesterday (February 22, 2011) by Matt Mullenweg himself, the new WordPress 3.1 “Django” is now available for download.
This long-awaited release of WordPress (I had pending work, waiting for the new advanced taxonomy queries), is packed with some new great features, such as:
- A lightning fast redesigned linking workflow which makes it easy to link to your existing posts and pages
- An admin bar so you’re never more than a click away from your most-used dashboard pages
- A streamlined writing interface that hides many of the seldom-used panels by default to create a simpler and less intimidating writing experience for new bloggers (visit Screen Options in the top right to get old panels back)
- A refreshed blue admin scheme available for selection under your personal options.
In this upgrade developers get the lion’s share, with new CMS capabilities like archive pages for custom content types, a new Network Admin, an overhaul of the import and export system, and the ability to perform advanced taxonomy and custom fields queries, and more!
As Matt states in the official Word Press blog: “With the 3.1 release, WordPress is more of a CMS than ever before. The only limit to what you can build is your imagination.“
Hurra! to that, (…) Matt!

For Your Eyes Only (FYEO) WordPress admin Plugin. Published on February 4, 2011
One of my fisrt Word Press plugins “FYEO”, has just been fully rewritten!
For Your Eyes Only (FYEO) Word-Press admin Plugin.
This plugin hides all Word Press Dashboard administrative-related information from non-admin users.
This means that just the admin (or someone with a user level of 10) is able to view them.
This is useful when you develop a wp blog to a client, and don’t want him to see the all dashboard info, word press blogs, resources, new WP-versions, etc.
New v4 version fully rewritten now with more robust coding. Download it here (it’s free): www.wdmac.com/wp-plugins/fyeo
