Matt Mullenweg WordPress co-founder announced the release of the latest version “Oscar“.
in honor of Canadian jazz pianist Oscar Peterson.

These are some of the updated features :

  • UI improvements on Navigation Menus
  • Screen Revisions revised to be more dynamic and scalable
  • Autosave and Post Locking
  • Preview Audio and Video on Media Edit Screen
  • In-line login following expired sessions

The post locking and auto save will definately be a handy feature that will help wordpress users, especially for multiple authors working on the same post. Each author now has their own autosave stream which stores things locally and on the server.

These are just some of the features. For more information on all the features including theme twenty thirteen go to the wordpress website.

For now I have not upgraded to wordpress 3.6, Have you downloaded WordPress 3.6? What do you think?
