WordPress 4.5

I’m honored to say that I was the Release Lead for WordPress 4.5 “Coleman”, and it was released, on time, last Wednesday.

I’ll be posting and speaking more about my experiences with the release in the coming months, but for now, a quick thank you note.

Thanks to Adam Silverstein (Release Deputy), Mel Choyce (Release Design Lead), and all of the 298 core contributors from around the world.

Additional thanks to everyone that helps out throughout all the contributor groups in WordPress; it wouldn’t be possible without you. 

Thanks to DreamHost for donating my time to the project. Commitment to Open Source matters.

Finally, thanks to my wife Elizabeth and daughter Sofía for your unfailing love, encouragement, and support throughout the release. ❤️

  1. Mike, PLEASE, for the love of God and blogger sanity EVERYWHERE, get rid of that $#%^!* Inline Link CRAP and give us back our little box where we can tick to open in a new tab AND to no-follow a link! I’m so sick and tired of having to go back and hand code all my no-follow links!!!! You’ve made life MISERABLE for my friends and I to the point where we don’t even want to BLOG anymore! Please change it back!!!!

    1. I recognize that this is not what you’re asking for, but you can get to the previous interface by clicking on the gear icon in the inline link area. This should include the new tab checkbox and whatever other things previous plugins might have added there.

  2. 4.5 is a very nice release and I enjoyed your talk at WordCamp St. Louis, last weekend. Hope to see you here next year.
