Just in time for the holidays, WordPress.org is getting ready to deliver WordPress 3.5. It’s not quite bug-free (about 12 or so issues remain to be fixed), but it is available for download. Beware, it’s not ready for live sites yet. It’s meant for developers and development servers only as it’s in test mode. They anticipate a clean release sometime next week, with some of these features:
- New Welcome Screen
- New default responsive theme Twenty Twelve
- Revamped Upload/Insert Workflow
- Full post type UI for attachments
- Hide Link Manager
Until I can kick the tires of the new WordPress 3.5 release, I won’t be able to comment if it fixes the messy media gallery interface. Hope so, as it causes a lot of pain for clients who regularly post content with images. The gallery gets unwieldy and needs categories for tidier organization.
