WordPress Version Release Updates

WordPress 4.9 – Tipton

Nov. 16, 2017
An exciting new release of WordPress is out. WordPress 4.9 “Tipton” is now available. Hats off to all 443 contributors (!) who made this release possible.

From the blog post on WordPress.org:

New features in 4.9 will smooth your design workflow and keep you safe from coding errors.

Featuring design drafts, scheduling, and locking, along with preview links, the Customizer workflow improves collaboration for content creators. What’s more, code syntax highlighting and error checking will make for a clean and smooth site building experience. Finally, if all that wasn’t pretty great, we’ve got an awesome new Gallery widget and improvements to theme browsing and switching.

Pagely is super-excited for this release. 4.9 is now the default version for new applications. We recommend creating a new staging app to try your site out on the new version before we begin the automatic upgrades in a couple weeks.

Automatic upgrades of existing sites will commence in a few weeks, as we don’t want to cause any unexpected breakage from the new version as we enter the upcoming Black Friday and Cyber Monday time period.

You can contact our team to opt-in to an upgrade to 4.9 ahead of the general rollout schedule. We will gladly upgrade your sites to 4.9 and help make sure the upgrade is successful.
