Highest hopes #wcch

It has been a while since I set down and wrote my last blog post. I don’t know what I was waiting for, or why I stopped, but now I feel like I want to write something big and meaningful .

 

WordCamp Switzerland 2014

 

Right now we are sitting in Starbucks in Zurich, as we are taking a quick break on walking and getting to know Zurich a bit better. And, yes, when I say we, I mean Gavrisimo and myself, a friend of mine from Serbia, that I used to work with in Razor Communications.

 

One of the reasons why I am visiting Switzerland is the WordCamp Switzerland 2014 #wcch. From day one it was announced as English speaking WordCamp and as soon as they got the tickets ready for sale, I was the one among the attendees. Another reason why I am here is the huge respect that I have for Noel Tock, the story behind and huge success of Human Made.

 

All in all, I think that WordCamp Switzerland 2014 #wcch will be huge success and I am really looking forward to it. I wish all of the attendees a great time.

 

Lots of faces I know and friends that I am really looking forward to see again is on this attendees list. Can’t wait to share the news about me starting WordPress Community Serbia and Meetups there.

WordPress 3.7 “Basie”

WordPress 3.7, “Basie”, has just been released. It’s been named in honor of Count Basie. The WordPress 3.7 development cycle is the quickest turnaround between major versions of WordPress ever.

Version 3.7 of WordPress, named “Basie” in honor of Count Basie, is available for download or update in your WordPress dashboard. This release features some of the most important architectural updates we’ve made to date. Here are the big ones:

  • Updates while you sleep: With WordPress 3.7, you don’t have to lift a finger to apply maintenance and security updates. Most sites are now able to automatically apply these updates in the background. The update process also has been made even more reliable and secure, with dozens of new checks and safeguards.
  • Stronger password recommendations: Your password is your site’s first line of defense. It’s best to create passwords that are complex, long, and unique. To that end, our password meter has been updated in WordPress 3.7 to recognize common mistakes that can weaken your password: dates, names, keyboard patterns (123456789), and even pop culture references.
  • Better global support: Localized versions of WordPress will receive faster and more complete translations. WordPress 3.7 adds support for automatically installing the right language files and keeping them up to date, a boon for the many millions who use WordPress in a language other than English.

For developers there are lots of options around how to control the new updates feature, including allowing it to handle major upgrades as well as minor ones, more sophisticated date query support, and multisite improvements. As always, if you’re hungry for more dive into the Codex or browse the over 400 closed tickets on Trac.

You may not notice a whole lot of sexy new (visible) features in this version, but the release is a huge win for the platform.

Read the full article and awesome write-up: What’s new in WordPress 3.7, “Basie”

William James “Count” Basie (August 21, 1904 – April 26, 1984[1]) was an American jazz pianistorganistbandleader, and composer. His mother taught him to play the piano and he started performing in his teens. Dropping out of school, he learned to operate lights for vaudeville and to improvise accompaniment for silent films at a local movie theater in his home town of Red Bank, New Jersey. By 16, he increasingly played jazz piano at parties, resorts and other venues. In 1924, he went to Harlem, where his performing career expanded; he toured with groups to the major jazz cities of Chicago, St. Louis and Kansas City. In 1929 he joinedBennie Moten‘s band in Kansas City, and played with them until Moten’s death in 1935.
