Named in honor of the composer and pianist George Gershwin, Auttomatic has released WordPress Version 3.2 “Gershwin”, bringing with it the usual slew of bugfixes, redesign and optimization of the WordPress framework.
The focus of 3.2 is making WordPress faster and lighter thus we have a refreshed dashboard design that seems to fit the bill. The new admin area feels much more streamlined if but spartan (which is a good thing).
On the backend of things, WordPress 3.2 brings a number of improvements and streamlines the codebase by dropping support for PHP4, older versions of MySQL and legacy browsers like IE6.
