New major release of WordPress here. Version 3.5 of the world's most popular CMS become available this week. We immediatelly started to check all our themes against the new WordPress 3.5. WordPress 3.5 comes with a bunch of new interesting features. First and the most important change is new improved Media Manager. We are sure it will save a lot of your time and make your work with media more comfortable. The new Media Manager itself is enough to convince you to upgrade your site to the latest version.
We thoroughly tested all our themes and plugins and did all necessary changes in the code to make them 100% compatible with new WordPress 3.5 and new jQuery libraries that it uses. If you are using any of our themes, after upgrade your site to WordPress 3.5 you could experience some problems. However, we have patches for all problems related to all our products.
