Unless any major bugs crawl out of the metaphorical woodwork, the next major release of WordPress should be released to the world tomorrow.
There are the usual fixes, tweaks and back-end improvements. The most visible feature is a shiny new interface for managing media attachments, which will make managing pictures a little easier. And as is traditional, there’s an equally shiny new default theme, called Twenty Twelve. I like this one, so much so that I’m now using a mildly tweaked child theme based on it. More tweaks may follow over the next few weeks, but for now, I quite like the latest new look.
