WordPress 3.7

October 24, 2013

From WordPress.org:

Version 3.7 of WordPress, named “Basie” in honor of Count Basie, is available for download or update in your WordPress dashboard. This release features some of the most important architectural updates we’ve made to date. Here are the big ones:

  • 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.

WordPress 3.7

We first used WordPress back in 2006 and have been using it ever since. After a few MySQL DataBase meltdown, due to misconfiguration by the web-host, we somewhat mirrored the content of 37prime.news at WordPress.com. Throughout the years, we watched WordPress gaining new features including the ever important WordPress-Update feature. Throughout the years we have also been recommending WordPress to our colleagues and friends.

Thank You to Matt Mullenweg, Automattic and WordPress.org for creating and maintaining this fantastic platform.

p.s. We love this WordPress 3.7 version number for an obvious reason.
