The latest version of WordPress is in the wild and its name is “Pepper” after baritone saxophonist Pepper Adams.
WP Tavern has a rundown of the new features.
WordPress 4.6 “Pepper” is now available and is named after Pepper Adams who played the Baritone saxophone and the clarinet. This release doesn’t have any jaw-dropping features, but rather a collection of incremental improvements. Building on the work introduced in WordPress 4.2, this release makes updating, installing, and deleting plugins and themes even faster.
Here’s the accompanying release video.
