The evolution of WordPress

WordPress developers share a love of jazz music. All major releases since WordPress 1.0 are named in honor of jazz musicians they admire.

Version 3.8 is named “Parker” in honor of Charlie Parker, bebop innovator.
We hope you’ll think this is the most beautiful update yet.
