Today saw the launch of WordPress 4.4. For me this is significant as most of my writing for publication online ends up in WordPress.
Some time ago I documented my initial experience with the platform and hosting services. Since then I’ve grown to admire the WordPress team for delivering utterly seamless upgrades, and Lightningbase as a wonderful hosting company. This site is just passing three years live at Lightningbase.
While I spend a lot of time in WordPress, the actual writing most typically happens in Windows Live Writer. I like the program for it’s simple functionality. I’ll have more on that in a post to follow tomorrow.
Recent changes in WordPress have included new back-end functionality that’s designed to facilitate more evolved front-end applications. The WordPress mobile apps (Android, iOS) have been around for a while. I’ve had one loaded to my Nexus 7 tablet for a long while, but never actually written anything substantial that way. I’ve tried a few times, but ultimately found the experience lackluster.
