WordPress 4.1 “Dinah” has been released. New features in WordPress 4.1 help you focus on your writing, and the new default theme lets you show it off in style. The release is named after jazz singer Dinah Washington. The latest version is available to download at WordPress.org as well as within the WordPress dashboard.
