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.

There was an error with the original build of the Canadian English 3.6 that was giving version 3.6-beta3-24485. I have fixed the build if you have the incorrect version then use the built-in updater now, or re-download on the right.
Take a break from you Beaver, it is now time to update WordPress. With the release of WordPress 3.3 “Sonny”. Named after Sonny Stitt a.k.a the Lone Wolf. What better way to write about a lone wolf in the forests of Canada then in your long time favourite WordPress now available in for the first time in Canadian English.
To install this beautiful shiny new version from scratch visit the download section to the right on the homepage and grab a copy. Then follow the directions in the “Read Me” file.
If you already have WordPress installed (Pre 3.3), then you can use the automatic upgrade link to upgrade to the US English version of 3.3.
Once you have 3.3 then add the wp-contents/languages folder and it’s contents to your site, and in your wp-config.php file change wplang to en_CA. Also the version of TwentyTen and TwentyEleven that is included in the download contains the Canadian English language files. That’s it your done.
The easiest place to see that it worked is to go to Users > Your Profile. It will now ask you for “Admin Colour Scheme” as opposed to “Admin Color Scheme”.
