WordPress 3.8 coming January 28

Wordpress 3.8 admin interfaceThe time between semesters is usually our opportunity to upgrade to major WordPress releases. This Tuesday morning will bring version 3.8, which includes a major overhaul to the admin interface. Light gray, low contrast is out; dark gray, higher contrast is in. Shadowed, multicolor icons are out; flat, scalable icons are in.

Using a responsive design, the interface is newly optimized for smaller device widths and higher resolution displays.

I will be adding a slightly modified version of the Twenty Fourteen magazine theme, as well.
