Below features are new which have been introduced in WordPress 3.7 to improve its usability and stability.
WordPress 3.7 Features
Password Strength Checker: The password strength checker is the first interesting feature which has been introduced in WordPress 3.7. Now whenever you or any of your visitors will create an account on your WordPress powered blog, WordPress will analyze the password being created and will notify either the password is strong enough or not.
Improved Search Results: In previous versions, the internal search feature wasn’t good. Previously, whenever I searched any old post from post editor while inserting a link, WordPress’ search feature never satisfied me. All posts were being listed where the keyword was present and the order was horrible. i.e. even the post with exact title match never listed at or near top.
But in recent release, this feature has been improved a lot. I tested it and found that posts are sorted by title and URL match which made me happy a lot and you will also find this feature cool 🙂
Automatic Core Updates in Background: Now you don’t need to update core files of WordPress manually whenever a minor update is available. The files will be updated automatically in background while you are working or offline.
Better Assortment of Posts Based on Time and Date: Now you can find and list posts based on any day, date or time. This feature is working great and you will find it really cool.
Improved Multisite Support: If you are managing more than one sites using WordPress, then version 3.7 will provide you with improved support, features and flexibilities.
Better Global Support: The language detection based on geographical locations has been improved in the latest release. It will further improve the usability of the CMS in different parts of the world.
In addition to these major features, several other improvements have been made to post saving while composing and to many other sections of the CMS. You will surely find WordPress 3.7 most stable among all other previous releases. You can download WordPress 3.7 here.
