Just a quick note regarding the WordPress 3.8 release.
You will see some big changes:
- Dashboard completely overhauled and more responsive. You may change the colors via: Users -> Your Profile. Other color schemes may be set up using this plugin, Admin Color Schemes
- New theme is greatly changed, with a more magazine like look and feel.
- Widget management has been improved.
A number of significant Jetpack updates are included in the 3.8 release as well.
One notable update is called Omnisearch, a new global search feature that searches everything WordPress (within your site and outside as well). To use Omnisearch you’ll need to first set up a Jetpack account, then enable this feature.
I generally recommend a cool down period of five days following a major WordPress update. Why be someone else’s test subject. . .
That said, if you do see a WordPress update available, no worries. I’ll be working through the update for your website within the next week or so.
