WordPress has a new release today! WordPress 3.7 quietly sneaks out to the masses with 3 big updates and tons of “under the hoods” fixes and security. All Agent Avenue sites are up to date and we recommend that all real estate agents using WordPress for real estate should upgrade as well to take advantage of the new features and security updates.
WordPress 3.7 – The Highlights
The first thing you will notice is… nothing…
Everything is under the hood for the most part but the developers have let everyone know with this opening line
Thank you for updating to WordPress 3.7! You might not notice a thing, and we’re okay with that.
Updates while you sleep: With WordPress 3.7, you don’t have to lift a finger to apply maintenance and security updates. Most sites are now able to automatically apply these updates in the background. The update process also has been made even more reliable and secure, with dozens of new checks and safeguards.

Create Stronger Passwords
Your password is your site’s first line of defense. It’s best to create passwords that are complex, long, and unique. To that end, our password meter has been updated in WordPress 3.7 to recognize common mistakes that can weaken your password: dates, names, keyboard patterns (123456789), and even pop culture references. Try it out on the right.
Improved Search Results
Search results are now ordered by how well the search query matches a post, instead of ordered only by date. For example, when your search terms match a post title, that result will be pushed to the top.
Better Global Support
Localized versions of WordPress will receive faster and more complete translations. WordPress 3.7 adds support for automatically installing the right language files and keeping them up to date.
