The Oddest Bug

I learned on Twitter last night that one bug in 3.9 is the inability to drag text into the WordPress Editor. That’s right, apparently, you could (at least on a Mac) drag text from another program right into a WP post.

Go ahead. Fire up a 3.8 instance and try it.

3.9 allows direct file drag and dropping into the editor (skipping the “Add Media” step), which breaks the ability to drag text into the editor.

I’ve never known this was possible before, so I don’t have a dog in getting it fixed, but the oddity of it is keeping me interested.

WordPress 3.9: Download Now

WordPress 3.9, “Smith” was released earlier today.

My streak of core commits continue with [26973] and [27049] (though that one, I think they edited 95% of my initial patch… my first and last attempt at an inline hooks doc).

This release has over 270 contributors. Some have contributed huge amounts of code and created headline features. Some, very minor changes. It all moves the project forward another release and all needed. I’m proud to be a part of this community and able to advance it in some small way.
