WordPress 3.5

WordPress today released version 3.5 of its popular blogging platform, with the latest update focused heavily on media sharing. The company has completely revamped its workflow for uploading content with a new drag-and-drop system that allows users to quickly reorganize galleries and add metadata/tags to large batches of photos at once. The improvements in usability are a necessary step if WordPress hopes to become a photo sharing destination in the same vein as Tumblr, its massively-successful competitor. With WordPress 3.5, blog owners also have access to a new default theme, Twenty Twelve, with a minimalistic, responsive design that's been optimized for display across screens both big and small. WordPress 3.5 is available for download from the company's website.
