The Canadian English version of WordPress 4.0 is now released!
Official Notice from the Core team:
Version 4.0 of WordPress, named “Benny” in honor of jazz clarinetist and bandleaderBenny Goodman, is available for download or update in your WordPress dashboard. While 4.0 is just another number for us after 3.9 and before 4.1, we feel we’ve put a little extra polish into it. This release brings you a smoother writing and management experience we think you’ll enjoy.
Version 3.9 of WordPress, named “Smith” in honor of jazz organist Jimmy Smith, is available for download or update in your WordPress dashboard. This release features a number of refinements that we hope you’ll love.
The full description of the update can be read on the official post.
After lots of work by many. WordPress 3.8 is out in Canadian English.
Update your sites now! It will look amazing! You can also read the release notes here.
It is that time that we get to release a brand new major release of WordPress. There are a lot of changes in the backend, not that you should notice.
Version 3.7 of WordPress, named “Basie” in honor of Count Basie, is available for download or update in your WordPress dashboard. This release features some of the most important architectural updates we’ve made to date. Here are the big ones:
- Updates while you sleep: With WordPress 3.7, you don’t have to lift a finger to apply maintenance and security updates. Most sites are now able to automatically apply these updates in the background. The update process also has been made even more reliable and secure, with dozens of new checks and safeguards.
- Stronger password recommendations: Your password is your site’s first line of defense. It’s best to create passwords that are complex, long, and unique. To that end, our password meter has been updated in WordPress 3.7 to recognize common mistakes that can weaken your password: dates, names, keyboard patterns (123456789), and even pop culture references.
- Better global support: Localized versions of WordPress will receive faster and more complete translations. WordPress 3.7 adds support for automatically installing the right language files and keeping them up to date, a boon for the many millions who use WordPress in a language other than English.
For developers there are lots of options around how to control the new updates feature, including allowing it to handle major upgrades as well as minor ones, more sophisticated date query support, and multisite improvements. As always, if you’re hungry for more dive into the Codex or browse the over 400 closed tickets on Trac.

Update: The post about the update is here https://wordpress.org/news/2013/06/wordpress-3-5-2/
There was an issue with the original file. It has been rebuilt and can be updated now.
The new version of WordPress is out. You are encouraged to upgrade to the latest version now. Details are available on the main WordPress blog.
I would like to thank everybody that is using the Canadian English localization (l10n) of WordPress. We are currently over 4,000 downloads. We have now made the release.
The most amazing new feature is the new media manager. Hi-Res icons and images in the admin look so smooth. Everyone is truly going to love it. TwentyTwelve is the new default theme that will look as awesome to mobile and tablet users as your site to desktop/laptop users. There is also an new colour picker with an amazing API.
There is a new build released today of 3.4.1 it corrects spelling and grammatical errors on the Read Me and an incorrect translation in the Network admin.
WordPress 3.4.1 is now available for download. WordPress 3.4 has been a very smooth release, and copies are flying off the shelf — 3 million downloads in two weeks! This maintenance release addresses 18 bugs with version 3.4, including:
Fixes an issue where a theme’s page templates were sometimes not detected.
Addresses problems with some category permalink structures.
Adds early support for uploading images on iOS 6 devices.
Allows for a technique commonly used by plugins to detect a network-wide activation.
Better compatibility with servers running certain versions of PHP (5.2.4, 5.4) or with uncommon setups (safe mode, open_basedir), which had caused warnings or in some cases prevented emails from being sent.
Version 3.4.1 also fixes a few security issues and contains some security hardening. The vulnerabilities included potential information disclosure as well as an bug that affects multisite installs with untrusted users. These issues were discovered and fixed by the WordPress security team.
