Join Joseph Lowery for an in-depth discussion in this video A word about updates, part of Dreamweaver CC and WordPress 3.8 Essential Training.
The web is constantly evolving and WordPress and Dreamweaver are no different. Before we get started, I wanted to take a moment to explain how updates to those programs are handled in terms of this course. WordPress issues updates on a regular basis and not too long ago they published a major release 3.8. That's the version we're going to be using in this course. Now it's typical for WordPress to follow with minor version updates, like 3.81, 3.82, and so on.
These so-called dot releases are mostly bug fixes and security refinements. The course materials should be fine with any such minor updates. However, if the course is affected by any release, we will first put out an FAQ that details the issues and any needed workarounds. If the issue is significant enough, I'll update the lessons. Changes, of course, also come to Dreamweaver, especially now with the Creative Cloud. I'm recording this course with the most recent release, 13.2.
Again, any dot releases on the Dreamweaver side should be fine with the course. And if they do release any significant enhancements, I'll cover those first through the FAQ and then if need be, update the lessons. Bottom line: Don't worry. We've got you covered, no matter how WordPress and Dreamweaver are updated.

Author update on April 4, 2014:
WordPress 3.8.2 is now available from wordpress.org. The update focuses on security issues and should not impact this course in any way. A much bigger release, 3.9, is currently a release candidate and will likely go live later in April. I'm currently evaluating what impact v3.9 will have on this course.
