WordPress 3.4 was downloaded over 28 million times. In WordPress 3.5, we saw some major new features like media uploader overhaul, new way to add plugins using favorites, twenty twelve theme, new welcome screen, and the end of the link manager.

  1. Hi ! I agree with you regarding the new Media uploader : my website is both a portfolio and my blog, so for the first part is kind of intuitive and stuff, but for my blog articles is less practical.

  2. Thanks for making the updates so easy to install.

    One question. I noticed after I upgraded that I can no longer paste in/edit a caption below a picture. I have to open the image editor and make the change to the caption there.

    I can type in the caption field, but when I try to paste the text lands in the main body copy below the picture.

    Is this intentional? I’d love to see that get changed back.

    Thanks again.
