Upgrade to PressBooks, new admin design

PressBooks has a new look — we’ve updated to the underlying infrastructure (WordPress) to the latest WordPress version, 3.8, which includes a big overhaul of the admin interface. There shouldn’t be too much change to system itself, but everything has a bit of a facelift. And, the admin interface should be happier with tablets and mobile phones.

We’ve done a fair bit of testing, but do let us know if you run into troubles. @pressbooks on Twitter, or support@pressbooks.com on the email.

More news to come soon, including updates on some new features that came along with the new look.
