Independence Day was celebrated in style at WordPress headquarters with the launch of their latest version of WordPress 3.2 (dedicated to noted composer and pianist George Gershwin), that after 15 million downloads of WordPress 3.1!
If you haven’t already seen what the faster, cleaner version 3.2 offers watch this great video by WordPress which summarizes it’s new features and optimizations nicely.
Well done to all the core contributors!

We’ve spent a good few hours testing our themes compatibility with WordPress 3.2, since it was officially released, as well as having upgraded our WooThemes site, and we are happy to report the themes are all playing nicely. Please do report any problems you might find though in our forums where we are on standby. As always we recommend you back up your site before upgrading!
