WordPress 3.4: One Week In

June 21st, 2012

WordPress 3.4 has been out for about a week now. So far, I’m loving the new theme customizer, but I’m mostly surprised by the fact that I haven’t had a single problem with it yet. In fact, I’d wager to say that this is the most problem-free release to date, and the list of known issues sure seems to back that statement. With that, I’d like to say “well done and thanks” to everyone who participated in this release!

How is WordPress 3.4 treating you? What are your major likes and dislikes in this release? Please note that tech support via comments isn’t fun for anyone involved, so if you need help, please stop by the support forums.

    I’ve been using it on my personal site for about a week now and I’ll be upgrading all of my sites during the weekend to 3.4. I hope 3.4.1 won’t be released on Monday or I’m going to be busy 2 weekends in a row.

    I’ve been using WP 3.4 for quite a while now. It’s been my testing ground for all my plugins and I find it a lot sleeker than earlier versions.

    I haven’t experimented much with the theme customizer yet.

    So far, so good. I installed 3.4 on the first day of its public release. The only problem I’ve encountered is with the Zemanta plugin. I keep getting a “transport” error. Since I removed the plugin, I haven’t had a problem. Of course, this problem could be related to my browser, IE 9. Otherwise, I like the update…seems to work very well.

    I’ve had a very easy transition into 3.4 as well. I love some of the new features, particularly being able to include HTML in captions and the improved Live Preview.

    Other than DB Cache Reloaded FIx not working all throughout beta testing and RC releases which have kept me off a couple of days until it got an update – there wasn’t much to worry about 3.4. All major blogs of mine are sporting it by now.

    I installed it, and except for the new features, it just “disappeared” and I’ve gone about doing what I need to do. That is the long way of saying no problems. Ok, perhaps one: an incompatible theme on one of my client’s sites and a week now with no work back from the theme designer, so I would assume they are not going to do any updating. I’ve already moved her site over to a new theme so all is good.

    5 days and no issues so far!

    I am having huge issues with the update. I now cannot scroll vertically at all to blog. The site is still functional, but no scrolling. This happened after the update!

    First site upgraded to 3.4 with no real problems. Theme wasn’t totally compatitible but only the theme setting admin page was affected, and the developer released an update the day after I upgraded to 3.4
    The site seems to serve a lot faster than before.
    Have several more sites to upgrade still. One is waiting for a required theme update. Will start on the others in the next few days.
    WP 3.4 looking really good…
