WordPress 3.5 ‘Elvin’ launches with new UI, Retina support


WordPress has been updated to version 3.5. The new version packs new features for users and developers alike, and has been given a complete facelift; the UI now has a minimalistic, easy to use look.
The newest version of the self-hosted blogging and CMS platform is nicknamed ‘Elvin’ in honour of the jazz drummer Elvin Jones, and has been tweaked to make it more user-friendly. The new version brings a ‘completely re-imagined’ flow for the media manager to upload and arrange photos and galleries.


WordPress 3.5 Elvin impresses with its changes

WordPress gets the media management right this time around. Simple drag and drop, drag to reorder, and inline caption editing will make using WordPress for publishing very easy. “Media has long been a friction point and we’ve listened hard and given a lot of thought into crafting this new system,” said Matt Mullenweg, a Founding Developer of WordPress, in a blog post.


A new theme called Twenty Twelve has been released with WordPress 3.5. A whole new Dashboard greets users, the interface of which has been streamlined with a focus on making the most used and important features available.


Tumblr imports have been restarted with this update on WordPress, and the site will now support Instagram images, and Soundcloud and SlideShare embeds too. Goodies have been stuffed inside this new update for developers as well.
The most important change made to WordPress, is support for Retina displays. The UI is Retina-ready with impressive high resolution graphics and a new colour picker. Since Retina displays are the way to go, this move will help the WordPress site immensely.


Earlier in October, Apple introduced a new version of the 13-inch MacBook Pro featuring a Retina Display and all-flash storage in a new compact design.
As per an official statement by Apple, the Retina display of the new MacBook Pro packs in more than 4 million pixels into its 13-inch display, which is nearly twice the number of pixels in an HD television. At 227 pixels per inch (ppi), the Retina display’s pixel density is so high the human eye is unable to distinguish individual pixels at a normal viewing distance. This makes images look sharp and text looks like it does on a printed page. With four times the pixels of the current 13-inch MacBook Pro, users  can view and edit video in pixel-accurate HD and see a new level of detail in high resolution images. Apple claims the 13-inch Retina display uses IPS technology for a 178-degree wide viewing angle and has 75 percent less reflection and 29 percent higher contrast than the current generation.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
