    [h=3]User Features[/h][​IMG]

    • The new Twenty Thirteen theme inspired by modern art puts focus on your content with a colorful, single-column design made for media-rich blogging.
    • Revamped Revisions save every change and the new interface allows you to scroll easily through changes to see line-by-line who changed what and when.
    • Post Locking and Augmented Autosave will especially be a boon to sites where more than a single author is working on a post. Each author now has their own autosave stream, which stores things locally as well as on the server (so much harder to lose something) and there's an interface for taking over editing of a post, as demonstrated beautifully by our bearded buddies in the video above.
    • Built-in HTML5 media player for native audio and video embeds with no reliance on external services.
    • The Menu Editor is now much easier to understand and use.
    [h=3]Developer features[/h]
    • A new audio/video API gives you access to metadata like ID3 tags.
    • You can now choose HTML5 markup for things like comment and search forms, and comment lists.
    • Better filters for how revisions work, so you can store a different amount of history for different post types.
    • Tons more listed on the Codex, and of course you can always browse the over 700 closed tickets.

    Not yet.. tried to update it from inside WP this afternoon but got an error.
    Will try again tomorrow.

    The main reason for me to stay up to date is always security reasons.

    Good to know. I hope all the core functions are intact. It becomes a pain in ass to fix them x(

    I've just updated a few of my blogs and thankfully it hasn't messed with the designs or anything. I hate it when I upgrade then have to spend a whole day fixing everything that broke as a result.

    Built in audio and video embedding support, bulletproof auto save -- I think they are gonna be useful :)
    Have to check the diff in the svn though...

    Just updated. Looking good, but I thought video embedding has been possible for awhile no?
