The next phase of the Glow blogs project is to upgrade to WordPress 4. This upgrade will happen on 20th January 2015 and will involve approximately 2 hours of downtime (from 16:00 to 18:00) when the blog service will be unavailable.
Moving to WordPress 4 is a major upgrade. Moving from version 2.9.2 to 4 of any software will bring changes.
While it might take users a short time to get used to the changes, we think that this will be a very positive upgrade to the Blogs service.
Among the major changes are: an improved menu system, making creation of more complex navigation easier; much better media handling; a generally better editing experience on modern browsers; much improved mobile interfaces; and most importantly a way to move forward and add more features in the future.
We will have several new themes and some existing themes will be updated too.
