I’m taking the excuse of WordPress 3.6 to change up my theme yet again. This time, I’m electing to go with the somewhat minimalist but very readable Ryu, from Takashi Irie (who I am happy to call colleague).

I’ll need to find my own twist on it at some point, but for now the default is looking lovely. I miss my Galaga homage already but think I can come up with something even better.

At some point other than today I should find reasons to fill it with words as well.

WordPress 3.6 shipped today, after a long wait and a lot of testing. It’s got a bunch of features I’ve been waiting for, including a better autosave, improved post revisions (in more than one way), vastly better post locking, and a great theme I’ve been using myself for most of the beta cycle called Twenty Thirteen.

I also love the new release video format:

Somehow, I ended up in that video with some rather amazing people. See if you can find me.

And watch the download counter. It’s always fun.
