WordPress 3.6 has been released. Also WordPress 3.7 and 3.8 will be released in the coming year itself with 3.8 sporting a new default theme – Twenty Fourteen which will be based on Further Theme. You can check its demo to see how it will look like when it comes eventually in December, 2013.

WordPress.com has made a big change in how they make their free themes available to the self hosted blogs. Earlier some of the themes were made available on the WordPress.org theme directory or via the author’s sites. But now WP.com is hosting all the free themes at their own site.

So head now to their free themes library to download and use any of those themes on your self hosted blogs.
