WordPress 3.5 should be dropping any time now, with RC3 and RC4 both released in the last couple of days. It’s only fitting to take a look at the WordPress.org download counter to see just how many times 3.4 has been released before it gets replaced by its successor. That number is 28 million. WordPress 3.4 has been downloaded over 28 million times since its release back in June.
For the math junkies out there, that’s approximately 160,000 downloads every day of its availability. Or nearly two downloads per second. By comparison, WordPress 3.3 saw just over 21 million downloads in about the same amount of time.
We should be able to start counting up WordPress 3.5 downloads real, real soon. Everyone ready for the big update?
