More Clean Dashboard

Except for the obvious flattened design there’ve been some changes to the default widgets. For example news have been put together into one feed and the QuickPress has been simplified and renamed into Quick Draft.

A New Themes Experience

The theme manager has also been completely reworked, there’s more focus on the preview image and a live preview option if you wan’t to test how the site could look with your very own content.

If you click on one of the preview images you get to the more classic theme managing experience with all the information about the theme in a modal popup.
