WordPress has always named releases in honor of jazz musicians. Often, after the release of a new version, I will search YouTube for a playlist of the artist being honored. I’ll then give my attention to the first song before moving on to update the few sites I manage.

Released today, WordPress 4.3 honors Billie Holiday. The first song in this playlist is Strange Fruit. Timely and apt. It’s a song I’d never heard and a song I will now never forget. #BlackLivesMatter
