This release features a 2 big functionalities that bloggers and site owners are going to really like:
- Featured Images – Now you can upload a featured image to your blog post (as long as your active theme supports this feature). We use featured images here on this blog and it’s part of our consistent workflow and design aesthetic. More and more blogs are using this feature so I wouldn’t call it a “must have” but it’s pretty up there.
- Full Screen Editor – All mobile devices are fighting for screen real estate by nature of their form so now that you have a full screen editor it won’t feel so darn cramped. Rock on my friends. I mean, write on my friends!
Other things to note are significant improvements to reliability – they’ve fixed nearly 20 bugs / crashes so you can be even more confident that you won’t lose that post mid-draft.
That’s a big win if I do say so myself.
