WordPress 4.7 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 4.7, try the WordPress Beta Tester plugin (you’ll want “bleeding edge nightlies”). Or you can download the beta here (zip).
Notable changes since WordPress 4.7 Beta 1:
- Twenty Seventeen: The theme wasn’t being installed on upgrades – sorry about that! Now you should see it if you’re upgrading an existing site. There are also plenty of fixes, especially for the header and small screen views.
- Edit shortcuts: These are always visible while editing (hide them on bigger screens by collapsing the controls) and should now work properly in Firefox. (#27403 and #38532)
- REST API endpoints: There have been a number of changes over the past week; your attention is requested on the following:
- More developer notes
- Various bug fixes: We’ve made almost 150 changes in the last week.
For more of what’s new in version 4.7, check out the Beta 1 blog post.
If you want a more in-depth view of what major changes have made it into 4.7, check out posts tagged with 4.7 on the main development blog, or look at a list of everything that’s changed. There will be more developer notes to come, so keep an eye out for those as well.
