1. Better column sorting in the dashboard.
For example, you want to search the newest or oldest post, you can sort them by clicking the arrow button.

You can now work faster whenever you want to link to your other posts or pages.
Interlinking in your site is important, also to improve your traffic. If you have not use related post yet, see more about my tutorial on adding related post without plugin.
3. More better pagination on your posts, or pages.
In the older version, you can’t type the direct page, example, you want to go to page “50” you can just type in the small box.
