    Article you write explains each and every feature in a crystal clear way.

    I also updated my blog just few hours ago and personally i fell in love with the new update features.

    The feature i like the most in the new update is the UI Design and the admin colors.

    They are simple and neat. Its a pleasure for eyes to watch the wordpress dashboard in those colors.

    Update was a nice one. When compared with the previous two. This is a much better one.
