Currently, WordPress offers for all webmasters a language that was selected during installation of the system. WordPress 4.7 will allow users to switch the language of administration right from your user profile. This option is useful especially if the site is managed by several people, who prefer a different language. Setting a different language of administration provided that the required languages are installed in WordPress.
Thumbnails for PDF files
The new version of WordPress will entail the preview feature for PDF files, which is already familiar from the current image. This gadget facilitates recognition files with the same or similar name. Unfortunately during my testing I could not replicate this feature. However, I believe that in the final version of WordPress 4.7 will thumbnails tuned and fully functional.
Minor variations are to see in text editor, you encounter while writing articles or pages. Menu for selecting the text has been moved to the upper rail. Button to underline is removed and the button for the horizontal separation of the text was moved to the bottom rail. Menu to select the type of text are displayed and keyboard shortcuts that you can save the writing for some time.
