WordPress 4.4 Beta 1

WordPress 4.4 Beta 1 is now available. It sounds like embedding is going to get a lot easier for those of us who are using hosted WordPress and have limited plugin/scripting options – “WordPress can now embed rich content from nearly all sites that support the oEmbed standard — not just YouTube, Flickr, Twitter, and the like. You can even embed previews of posts from other WordPress sites by pasting the URL on its own line.”
