With WordPress 4.7 „Vaughan“, a great update was released, which, in addition to many improvements, also includes the brand new theme „Twenty Seventeen“.We are already distributing the update to our managed WordPress websites. WordPress standard installations usually also receive the update automatically.
If you have disabled the automatic updates for your website, you can install WordPress 4.7 directly from the WordPress admin area. To do this, select Dashboard > Updates and then Update Now.
WordPress 4.7 Highlights:
New Standard Theme Twenty Seventeen
Twenty Seventeen surprises by the use of the new video header in combination with parallax scrolling with a dynamic appearance.
A video from the media library or from YouTube can now be integrated into the header area.
In the customizer, special attention was paid to this update. Websites can be adjusted more quickly and easily to individual needs now.
The arrangement of the individual elements in the toolbar has been redesigned to allow even more comfortable working.
For new websites, sample contents (texts and images) are displayed in the customizer for a better orientation. This will make it easier for new WordPress users to enter the theme .
Of course, a whole lot of other improvements have been released, on which we will report in detail.
