WordPress 3.6 Beta Released

The WordPress 3.6 Beta has been released, and users with a self-hosted WordPress installation can easily upgrade to it with the Beta Tester plugin. This is the first beta release, so it’s not recommended for live sites, but plugin/theme developers and anyone with a keen eye for bugs are encouraged to try it out now.

Unlike previous WordPress Beta releases, this one is feature-complete, so everyone can focus entirely on reporting and fixing bugs without worrying about any incoming new features.

This new release brings with it a new default theme, local autosaves (to project your post in the event of crazy unforeseen events), a new post formats UI, a new simplified custom menus UI, support for embedding uploaded audio and video files without relying on a plugin or third-party service, and better revisions with the ability to lock a post in progress.

If you run into any bugs, please check the known and fixed issues first, report them if they have not already been reported or fixed, and visit the support forums if you need any help.
