WordPress Announces New 3.5 Version Called ‘Elvin’

WordPress has announced a new WordPress 3.5 which features a whole new and improved way to upload photos and to create galleries. The 3.5 version is called ‘Elvin’ in honour of drummer, Elvin Jones.

The new version has updates that go far beyond a fresh photo improvement. Elvin has added a new default theme for mobiles called Twenty Twelve.

Twenty Twelve has a new refreshed style for the dashboard, has updated the theme so that it has high resolution graphics, and is 'Retina-ready.’

Highlights of version 3.5 for the media manager section of the blogging site include a streamlined new interface where users can create galleries with a simpler drag-and-drop method. They will also be able to insert multiple images at once.

The Twenty Twelve default theme is a simple and more elegant design which is its first that is responsive on mobile devices and makes use of all of the latest Theme Features.

Enhancements to the admin page include a new welcome screen, better accessibility for screenreaders and other touch devices, a new colour picker and more.

The video below shows the new features in more detail.

The new release is just under 5MB in size and can be downloaded from WordPress.org/Download.
