Today I found out that WordPress plans to modify the design of the current WordPress dashboard. The main interface will stay the same for the most part, but the new design will include some changes that are supposed to improve the appearance of the dashboard elements.
If you are in an adventurous mood, you can try out the new dashboard for yourself. WordPress gives you the option to “Enable experimental admin design (MP6)” in your Personal Settings. More details about the new dashboard are available at the following link: Preview the Future Design of the WordPress Dashboard.
After WordPress finishes making some adjustments, the experimental dashboard design will become the standard dashboard design later this year.
