Try this: update to WordPress 4.2 beta 2 and drag the “Press This” to your bookmark bar. Visit a URL that you like and poof. I just did that on a Flickr photo and I was able to select the image from the options and below is the result. Explore Alvin Bernardo’s photos on Flickr! Source: […]
Copying and pasting from Microsoft Word directly into the Visual Editor is my new favorite thing in 3.9 beta. I just tried it on Lily’s store WordPress site and it worked alright.

I svn’ed the latest 2.9 beta on my blog, so far so good. It’s visually the same as 2.8 so I think user acceptance will be good.
