  • WordPress TV Shortz Episode 4 Ver. 1.01

    Speaker: John Parkinson

    October 28, 2016 — Just a quick update about the announcement of WordPress 4.7 Beta being available for download.

    In the late 1960’s there was a TV show called Get Smart. The series centered around a bumbling secret agent named Max Smart, Agent 86. One of the popular catchphrases during the show was “I missed it by that much, Chief!”

    Such was the case last night. I had published WordPress TV Shortz Episode 4 and had made reference to the Core Teams work on the new release of WordPress. When I woke up this morning, there was the announcement of the Beta 1 release.

    I missed it by that much!
