Finally, a day that WordPress users have been waiting to arrive for many years is here. WordPress 3.9 has been released, and you can now copy and paste from Microsoft Word directly into the visual editor in WordPress without all of that extra, messy code being added. Imagine the time bloggers will save!
But that's not the only awesome thing in the newest version of WordPress. Check out these highlights:
- Crop, rotate, resize and edit images directly within the post editor
- Drag-and-drop images from your desktop to your WordPress dashboard
- Gallery previews display in a grid of images within the post editor so you can see how they'll look in your published post
- Audio and video playlists
- Add, edit, and move widgets within the dashboard and see what they'll look like before you save the changes to your live blog
- Upload, crop, and manage headers as you customize your theme
- A better theme browser
WordPress.org users can upgrade to WordPress 3.9 through their WordPress dashboards. You can read all of the details in this post by Matt Mullenweg on the WordPress blog.

If you use WordPress.org as the platform for your self-hosted blog or website and the Jetpack plugin is installed and active, then you need to take action immediately and update that plugin!
Yesterday, a critical security update was released for Jetpack. To ensure your WordPress site is secure, log into your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the updates page, and click the link to upgrade to Jetpack 2.9.3. That's all you have to do.
The security lapse allowed attackers to access a WordPress site's back-end controls and publish posts on the live blog. The security update fixes the problem.
For all of the details about the security issues, check out the article about it on the Jetpack website.
If you use a managed WordPress host like Synthesis, Pressable, or WP Engine, this update has likely already been taken care of for you, but be sure to confirm that it has been done. If you don't use the Jetpack plugin, then you don't have to do anything.
