Coleman Hawkins 4.5
Colman Hawkins is the latest update from WordPress.
I love the way WordPress links releases to Jazz artists. I grew up listening to the jazz greats and not so greats in the sixties. I remember the record covers and the record playing in the room. The player was a RCA with the dog staring at the speaker that looked like the front of a trumpet. When I saw WordPress links there versions to jazz I fell in love. A nostalgic love for my dad and his collections. For anyone who does not know who Colman is check out the second video below.
Version 4.5 of WordPress, named “Coleman” in honor of jazz saxophonist Coleman Hawkins, is available for download or update in your WordPress dashboard. New features in 4.5 help streamline your workflow, whether you’re writing or building your site.
And here is a run-down of the features posted by Webdesigner.com:
- WordPress 4.5 now offers partial reload and loading of assets in the Theme Customizer. So if you change your logo, or the menu, the page will reload only that component, not the full thing.
- WordPress 4.5 now also offers native support for logos, so you can add your site logo in the Site Description section of the Theme Customizer.
- Inline links have been revamped and you can easily click and add links while editing content.
- Additional formatting aids, such as ` and ` to enclose preformatted code have been added.
- Better compression for images has now enhanced the performance of such images by almost 50% without affecting quality.
- Many other code and function improvements as well as bug fixes.
