WordPress 3.8 released today, As a blogger and a hardcore WordPress fan I’m waiting for the next big release of WordPress. Immediately after the update news reached me I just jumped in to my dashboard and updated to WordPress 3.8. Whoa!!! The new look was amazing and beautiful. The admin panel improved a lot and admins can chose their own color schemes now. We all know how beautiful and visually stunning the windows 8 was when compared to windows 7, I’m sure every WordPress user will feel the same way from WordPress 3.7 to 3.8.
The new WordPress dashboard has a fresh, uncluttered design that embraces clarity and simplicity.

WordPress 3.8 Features

WordPress just got a colorful new update. WordPress 3.8 include eight new admin color schemes so you can pick the one that suits you best.

WordPress On Every Device
We all access the internet in different ways. Smartphone, tablet, notebook, desktop — no matter what you use, WordPress will adapt and you’ll feel right at home.
High Definition & Beautiful Icons
WordPress is sharper than ever with new vector-based icons that scale to your screen. By ditching pixels, pages load significantly faster, too.
Improved Theme Management
It’s easy to manage your themes now. The new themes screen lets you survey your themes at a glance. Or want more information? Click to discover more. Then sit back and use your keyboard’s navigation arrows to flip through every theme you’ve got.
Smoother widget experience
Drag-drag-drag. Scroll-scroll-scroll. Widget management can be complicated. With the new design, we’ve worked to streamline the widgets screen.
Have a large monitor? Multiple widget areas stack side-by-side to use the available space. Using a tablet? Just tap a widget to add it.
The Open Sans typeface provides simple, friendly text that is optimized for both desktop and mobile viewing. It’s even open source, just like WordPress.
We think beautiful design should never sacrifice legibility. With superior contrast and large, comfortable type, the new design is easy to read and a pleasure to navigate.
Last But Not Least – The All New Twenty Fourteen Theme
Create a beautiful magazine-style site with WordPress and Twenty Fourteen. Choose a grid or a slider to display featured content on your homepage. Customize your site with three widget areas or change your layout with two page templates.
With a striking design that does not compromise our trademark simplicity, Twenty Fourteen is our most intrepid default theme yet.
