WordPress 4.9 “Tipton” is here!

WordPress 4.9 “Tipton” landed today. Thanks to the hard work put in by 443 contributors, WordPress brings a lot of enhancements to both end users and developers.

The WordPress Customizer was at the center of this release. Drafting & scheduling support and content protection guards were added to the Customizer, bringing it in line with the Post/Page Editor interface.

Special props to rtCamper Sayed Taqui who was one of the featured contributors of the release:

Sayed really put in the hours and made some 180+ commits toward the aforementioned Customizer drafting functionality. We set aside some cake for Weston Ruter and XWP who helped support Sayed’s particularly noteworthy contribution to the release! ?

We also appreciate the contributions of the following rtCampers to WordPress 4.9: Daniel, Juhi, Kiran, Milind, Siddharth, Utkarsh, Umesh & Yahil. rtCampers have now contributed to 14 consecutive major WordPress releases, spanning all the way back to WordPress 3.6!

    1. We can save some cake for you the next time around. It’ll hopefully be a “block” of cake 😉
