WordPress 4.5 Beta 2 is now available!
This software is still in development, so we don’t recommend you run it on a production site. Consider setting up a test site just to play with the new version. To test WordPress 4.5, try the WordPress Beta Tester plugin (you’ll want “bleeding edge nightlies”). Or you can download the beta here (zip).
For more information on what’s new in 4.5, check out the Beta 1 blog post. Some of the fixes in Beta 2 include:
- Added Horizontal Rule (HR) editing shortcut and dismissible “Paste as Text” notice in TinyMCE.
- Selective Refresh support is enabled for core themes titles and taglines, which allows shift-click to focus on controls and PHP filters to apply in the preview.
- Resolved a fatal error on image upload when ImageMagick could not complete stripping meta during resize (#33642).
- Various bug fixes. We’ve made just over 100 changes in the last week.
If you think you’ve found a bug, you can post to the Alpha/Beta area in the support forums. We’d love to hear from you! If you’re comfortable writing a reproducible bug report, file one on the WordPress Trac. There, you can also find a list of known bugs.
It’s peer pressure time
Testing: all cool kids do it
