WordPress 4.1 was released on December 18, 2014.

It’s a minor upgrade but includes a few gems if you use WordPress as often as I do.

Distraction-Free Writing Mode

Now you can completely focus on what matters most at the moment: content.

We recently hired Graticle to design and program our client’s new WordPress website. He did a wonderful job. The site is not only stunning to look at, it also operates beautifully. We enjoyed working with Shawn and we plan on using his services in the future. If you are looking for a designer/programmer that is detailed-oriented, customer-focused, timely and talented – Shawn is your guy.

I worked with Shawn on my company’s website and he was very helpful and generous with his knowledge and time. He was responsive when I had issues or questions. The input he provided on concepts and trends that make some sites better or more visible than others was great as well. I would feel good referring Graticle to others and was pleased with the services they provided to us.
