All websites hosted by Scene 17 Media that are built with WordPress have now been updated to version 3.5 (also known as “Elvin”). Downtime for each site during this maintenance, which was completed on December 24th, was about five minutes.
WordPress 3.5 features a brand-new, rewritten “Media” section, which makes working with photos, videos and other media items easier than ever. Drag and drop capabilities are improved and simplified, and the old media library (a source of much frustration around the Scene 17 Media studio in the past) is now a joy to work with, with thumbnails that can be reordered, and a responsive sidebar that makes changing titles, captions and other information a snap.
Here’s a brief video highlighting the improvements to WordPress 3.5:
