Wordpress 4.0 available on Bitnami

WordPress, the overwhelmingly popular open source CMS project, has just released version 4.0. This version is known as "Benny" in honor of jazz clarinetist and bandleader Benny Goodman, and for good reason.  This new update brings the user an all-around smoother writing and management experience like the jazz music Benny created. This new version also includes many bug-fixes, which you can view here. We are happy to announce that WordPress 4.0 is now available on Bitnami! Check out our Bitnami WordPress InstallersAmazon EC2 AMIsAzure Cloud Images and virtual machines.
