WordPress 3.7 is out now

That was a quick one – it’s less than three months since 3.6, and here we are with a shiny new version. I’ve just upgraded here, which worked nicely.

There’s not a massive amount of visible new features this time – version 3.8 is likely to be more dramatic in that area – but one thing that’s worth mentioning is automatic background updates. So long as your server configuration allows it, WordPress can now install point releases all by itself, so you don’t have to remember to get around to it. I’ve had this running with the beta and release candidate version on a test site, and it does indeed work. Nice. It won’t do major releases at this point[1], so it will take you from 3.7.1 to 3.7.2, but not to 3.8 when it appears.
