This small informative post is for you to just know about what is new on WordPress 4.1

WordPress version 4.1 has just been released with a bunch of new features, improvements and a brand new theme for the new year, aptly named Twenty Fifteen.

Twenty Fifteen is a neatly designed theme with exclusive focus on the content. No matter what the device and what the screen size, your content will be in the center of visitor's attention. To improve readability, this new theme makes use of Google's Noto font family which is pleasant to read on any screen.

The new WordPress version, now available for download on WordPress.org and update from WordPress dashboard, brings a new and improved distraction-free writing that takes all the toolbar and sidebar away and let you focus more on creating content. Many people find distraction-free editing more creative and convenient. WordPress previously had this feature, but it wasn't as good as it is today with the release of WordPress 4.1.

After you install the new version, in the editing panel you'll be introduced with the new distraction free mode button. When enabled, that button makes everything but your editor disappear. So in your whole screen, you only see the editor and your text. Whenever you need those tools back, just move your cursor and they'll appear.

    The old distraction free editor used to allow you to CTRL+- to change the width of the content area to better match your blog width. Does the new DF editor disallow this now?
