  4. TinyMCE has been updated to 3.5.7 and now also supports HTML5 tags
  5. jQuery gets updated to 1.8.3. jQuery UI is now 1.9.2. now you can use protocol-relative links when enqueuing scripts and styles.
  6. In the post or page editor the “HTML” tab has been renamed “Text”.
  7. Media:One of the single biggest changes in WordPress 3.5 is the way media is handled. The media library has had a much needed overhaul, when you edit an image you now get an edit screen more like the edit post screen.
  8. Better image quality for automatically resized images.
  9. Add Media : modal box with a much clearer workflow on how to upload, edit and insert your images. You can add Featured images from within the Add Media screen now and insert a gallery directly as well. No more uploading, saving, moving tabs and hoping it might appear. It was much more like Facebook or Flickr.
