WordPress, a content management system for web sites, just released its latest update, version 3.6 “Oscar.” As of August 1st, 2013, the update has become available to the public. It includes an auto-saving feature, post locking, support for video and video embedding, and a layout that is catered towards blogging. It now even has integration with SoundCloud, Rdio, and Spotify. What isn’t there to love? Wait! Let’s not forget to mention the ability to choose HTML5 mark up for things like comments or search forms. How awesome is that?
If you plan on upgrading to version 3.6, or “Oscar”, be sure to back up any site(s) you have. Rumors of failing updates causing issues are possible. Never the less, updates always have the possibility to potentially break your site(s). It’s just part of the technical world we live in. So be smart, and back things up.
