Upgrade Your Blog to WordPress 3.3 “Sonny”

WordPress 3.0 ‘Sonny’ named after a jazz artist Sonny Stitt is now available. Users can either download it from WordPress.org website or upgrade it automatically from their WordPress Dashboard.


What’s New with WordPress 3.3

  • The new WordPress version will allow dragging and dropping files into the WordPress uploader. Support has been added for rar (winrar) and 7z (7Zip) files.
  • This version will also feature fly out menus, which will help navigate on the dashboard a lot faster.
  • WordPress 3.3 also shows a lot more by combining the old dashboard header with the toolbar.


  • There will be no time lag when two people are in edit mode for the same post.
  • WordPress 3.3 will also feature the ability to import you Tumblr blog onto WordPress.

Before you update your WordPress 3.3 make sure your theme is compatible with the latest version along with plugins you are using.

Also adding a note  of caution that before any upgrade, it is always a good idea to take a backup. 🙂

I have recently upgraded and I love the fly out menu feature.
The feature that allows drag and drop for media uploading is also good.
