WordPress 4.7 Released

WordPress 4.7 has been released! This release introduces Twenty Seventeen as the new default theme, tons of Customizer improvements, thumbnail previews for uploaded PDFs, per-user Dashboard language settings, REST API content endpoints, and more!

482 volunteers contributed to this release, lead by Helen Hou-SandĂ­. At the time of writing this, WordPress 4.7 has been out for about 4 hours, and has already been downloaded 573,149 times!

All users can now safely update from Dashboard -> Updates or download and update manually, though you should probably backup first just in case, unless you’re already using VaultPress, which you really should be.

If you run into any problems, stop by the known issues first, and please let us know if it’s not covered there!
