Meet "Billie" - WordPress 4.3

New from the team at Automattic is version 4.3 of WordPress. This version is called "Billie" and brings new features such as:

  • Better Passwords
  • Menus in the Customizer
  • Formatting Shortcuts ( A personal favorite!)
  • Site Icons ( customize your icons across all of your apps and sites)
  • A smoother admin experience
  • Comments are now turned off on all new pages by default ( Finally!)
  • Template Hierarchy (Added singular.php as a fallback for single.php and page.php.
