This version of WordPress really does close the gap between editing and publishing.

The updated visual editor is speedy, accessible and now quite good on mobile devices.

This version also plays nicely with video and audio files, so those of you out there who like to sprinkle video and podcasts into your websites will be smiling at this improvement.

The theme browser now lets you fully explore the intricate details of themes before activating.
