Well if you can read this then you know it’s working. After way too many weeks, Debian will have WordPress version 3.8. Thanks to Raphaël for his kind assistance and answering my questions about how it was built. The upload is still gurgling along and will make it there in its own time. He said Handing over packages is hard, I’d agree but say taking over them is too.
So, what does WordPress 3.8 look like? From the “frontend” I didn’t really notice much. The big changes, at least cosmetically, seem to be for the admin backend. It just look slicker and cleaner.
Hopefully Debian users find the update useful and I’ve not broken anything. There’s always the BTS if there is. I’ve deliberately tried to minimise the changes for this version to limit the breakage.
