WordPress 3.2 New Dashboard and Twenty Eleven

May 6th, 2011
WordPress, WordPress News

Previews of upcoming WordPress 3.2 changes seem to be pouring out regularly these days, especially since the news about the new distraction free writing mode earlier.

The team has got to work on a full Dashboard refresh, which you see some nice screenshots of here. Overall, the new look is quite a bit sleeker and clearer than earlier versions.

We’re also getting our first sneak peaks at Twenty Eleven, which is still pretty much Duster with a few minor changes. If you’re handy with accessibility issues, the team is looking for both feedback on Twenty Eleven and volunteers to join a new accessibility working group.

If you can’t wait to get your hands on these cool new changes, install the WordPress Beta Tester plugin to grab the latest trunk.

Are you running the latest WordPress 3.2 trunk? What do you think so far?

    I’m just thinking out loud here… Is it worth moving a Twenty Ten child theme to Twenty Eleven?

      Twenty Eleven is a very different theme. It might be worth it for the additional features, but your child theme would probably require a few changes to look similar under Twenty Eleven.

        It should keep me nicely on my toes honing my Theme skills – who knows I might be able to write my own by the end of it.
