Development on WordPress 3.6 has taken off like a rocket, and six areas of focus have already been defined.

If you aren’t already following along with the Make WordPress Core blog, I highly recommend doing so now, especially if you’re a plugin or theme developer, or just someone whose livelihood relies on WordPress in general.

    I am not a WordPress developer but I am fascinated with this technology and several of mine and some of my friend’s websites are on this platform. It is exciting to see the things lined up for the next release.
    Thanks for sharing.

    I didn’t know DRW(distraction free writing) existed in WordPress. Granted, i’m not a WordPress super-user but I do use it.

    I hope they develop it further as I am a big fan of IA Writer for the iPad, DRW sounds like a similar solution for WordPress.

    Huh, Glad to see their revamping autosave and post locking. A few days ago I lost a post I was working on for nearly an hour!

    I’ve never even heard of distraction free writing, guess I have a lot to learn!

      That’s why I write my articles in an external word processor and then paste it (as plain text!) in WordPress and format it. I then keep a copy of that article in my laptop.

        Smart. The same happened to me when I was writing an article about the housing market in the Netherlands. Lots of research and 45 minutes of work gone. It is not too hard to think of this…but aparently I didn’t.
        Thanks!

        I NEVER write anything directly in WordPress (or any other platform). Lost info too many times, so i also write everything in a simple .txt file and then move it to WordPress/online. it’s the safest way

    let’s see.

    A new WordPress backend-look would be awesome: clean, minimal.

    I think the integrated image editor needs some enhancement. Namely how difficult it is to crop or scale something easily. Right now you have to enter in each dimension to resize to and the aspect isn’t automatically locked. Resizing also harms the quality. That would make it a lot easier for my post flow.

    Tried looking for a plugin for this functionality but it doesn’t exist from what I see.

      If you’re running WordPress 3.5 (if not, you should be), reach out to your hosting provider and ask if they have Imagick installed on your server. WordPress now uses this as the default for image modifications instead of GD.

      It doesn’t alter the interface at all, but it significantly improves the quality of modified images. You can see a great example at http://www.getsource.net/2012/.....ick-makes/

    The distraction-free writing is a nice idea, but I’m surprised more folks don’t write their posts outside of the WordPress editor. Even with autosave, I still prefer the control and peace of mind of a simple text document.
