WordPress 4.0beta1 already available in Bitnami

WordPress just released the first Beta of the major 4.0 version that is due out next month. Some of the major changes in this version include:
  • Previews of embedding via URLs.
  • Media Library now has a "grid" view.
  • Improvements in the plugin install experience.
  • Language selection during the installation.
  • Editor top and bottom bar improvements.
  • and more

In case you are not familiar with Bitnami WordPress stack, it provides a one-click install solution for WordPress. We take care of compiling and configuring WordPress and all of its dependencies (third-party libraries, runtime, and database) so it works out-of-the-box. It includes ready-to-run versions of Apache, MySQL, PHP and Varnish.

You can download native installers for Windows, OS X or Linux, virtual machines for VMware or VirtualBox, or deploy pre-made Amazon EC2, and Azure cloud images.

If you think you’ve found a bug, you can post to the Alpha/Beta area in the support forums.
