WordPress 4.4.2 is now available for download.

This is a maintenance and security release that addresses 17 bugs and two security issues. In most cases your WordPress installation should proceed to do the update automatically, but in the event your setup does not allow this, we recommend that you check and proceed with the update as soon as possible.

The Jetpack plugin (version 3.9) now includes an XML sitemaps module. XML sitemaps play an important role in a site's SEO, and as a result, many WordPress sites make use of a plugin that takes care of this functionality.

Jetpack will attempt to establish if you are using one of these plugins before activating - but the module can be switched on/off as necessary

When we started working on our first theme, we spent some time debating the merits of multi-purpose vs niche themes.

We decided to go the niche route, and this article posted on Envato earlier echoes many of our thoughts.

Happy New Year to all our followers! We're back at full steam, and ready to tackle the year.

Our first bit of news is the release of WordPress 4.4.1. This is a security and maintenance release that addresses a critical XSS vulnerability.

Has anyone had a chance to check out the desktop app yet? It's been out for Mac for a couple of weeks now, but they've just released a Windows version.
Automattic has released a desktop version of their WordPress app for Windows. The app will let you manage multiple sites, edit and publish posts, follow other WP sites and provide notifications.

There are still some limitations, but the app will no doubt be experiencing further development and improvements.

If you're an old hand at setting up new WordPress websites, you'll be familiar with the Hello Dolly Plugin, which causes a random line from the song Hello Dolly to appear in your Admin screen.

Just in time for the new Star Wars release, however, you can now get a plugin known as The Force, which does the same thing, except with famous quotes from Star Wars characters.

May The Force be with you ;)
