WordPress 3.7 released, This time, It’s Automatic


WordPress 3.7 is released, thanks Automattic, and also; it’s automatic. WordPress 3.7 comes with auto updating feature, the computers are thinking for themselves!

WordPress 3.7 is called Basie, in honour of Count Basie, or; if you read between the lines; Basie is short for Basinger, Kim Basinger is an American movie star, and so is Arnold Schwarzenegger, who starred in, Terminator. Wordpress has gone all Skynet, terminating our need to click update.


WP 3.7 feature lowdown:

  • Updates while you sleep: With WordPress 3.7, you don’t have to lift a finger to apply maintenance and security updates. Most sites are now able to automatically apply these updates in the background. The update process also has been made even more reliable and secure, with dozens of new checks and safeguards.
  • Stronger password recommendations: Your password is your site’s first line of defense. It’s best to create passwords that are complex, long, and unique. To that end, our password meter has been updated in WordPress 3.7 to recognize common mistakes that can weaken your password: dates, names, keyboard patterns (123456789), and even pop culture references.
  • Better global support: Localized versions of WordPress will receive faster and more complete translations. WordPress 3.7 adds support for automatically installing the right language files and keeping them up to date, a boon for the many millions who use WordPress in a language other than English.
