The latest version of WordPress i.e. WordPress 3.8 is now available for download. This version of WordPress has been named Parker. The version was named after Charlie Parker, the famous American Saxophonist, who made leading contribution in the innovation of bebop.
According to a post made by Matt Mullenweg on WordPress official blog, this is going to be the most beautiful update WordPress has ever rolled out. Many new design features have been included in this version. The key updates includes removed gradients in the admin panel, various color options for the WordPress admin dashboard and an all new WordPress theme called Twenty Fourteen. When it come to colors and flat design, probably, WordPress got inspired from Apple’s latest iPhone model – the iPhone 5C.
I’ve just updated the latest version on this blog and it feels like using the a WordPress.com admin dashboard. Also, I couldn’t get the reason for naming it Parker but I’d take this one as WordPress 3.8 C – the colored one!
