There is a new version of WordPress being released today – codename Benny. There will be great new features, such as enhanced visual browsing of the media and plugin libraries.
Mostly, though, I was struck by a figure included in their launch post: there were 275 contributors to the release. Wow!
WordPress is open source. Folks from all levels of experience can chip in and contribute from their skill sets. To jump into the awesomeness yourself, check out the offical “Make” website and get started.
