It was just a week ago that WordPress 3.4 came out, and from the sounds of things the upgrade went pretty smoothly for everyone. Last week we ran a poll asking you, our (rather handsome) readers, what your favorite new feature or enhancement in the new version of WordPress was your favorite. To be honest, the responses surprised me a bit.
Within just a couple of days of the release of 3.4, more than 25% of WPCandy readers polled said they liked the new query efficiency improvements the most, followed by 18% in favor of the new theme customizer over anything else.
oEmbed tweets, HTML support in captions, and the new default redirects for dashboard URLs came in close at 11%, 8.5%, and 8% respectively. Things like XML-RPC updates and child themes in the directory came out at the back of the pack with only a few percentage points each.
Keep in mind that only around 200 folks participated in the poll (so far) so take it with a grain of salt. These poll results speak more to the interests of the audience that reads this blog, really. We love our performance, don’t we?
