What Looks Amazing in WordPress 4.7 Beta 1

If you’ve been wanting to get your hands on WordPress 4.7, you can now get the Beta 1 version from wordpress.org. The feature list is looking really spicy. Standouts include:

  1. REST API content endpoints. Really the headlineā€”see our recent interview with Josh Pollock for details.
  2. The Twenty Seventeen Theme: very pretty and single-pagey.
  3. Custom CSS in the Customizer: make CSS changes and see them live.
  4. Video headers as an element of theme support. This should make it easier to have beautiful “hero” homepage videos as a theme element controlled through the Customizer, without the need for third-party plugins.

All these features need tested, so grab the Beta version and enjoy!
