    pop-up is irritating as heck and an oxymoron – I run multiple wp sites and have dismissed that window more than I’d like, just wondering if it’s an April Fool’s joke that’s been running for a while. 😮

    I can’t think of anything else in the admin that gets a pop-up window, and to boot to only announce that WP has a distraction free writing mode – it’s like a speed bump on an on-ramp.

    New features get pop-ups as they’re introduced. Since the DFW mode was re-done, it got a popup, ironically.

    It’s definitely not an April Fool’s thing, and something newer will be getting a pop-up the next release.

    You’re right, thank you. I forgot that all things new get some razzle-dazzle.

    For those of us just wanting to post new topics to our blogs and don’t really care for the whiz-bangs, it would be nice to click one time to dismiss all new ‘hey, look at me’ pop-ups. I always update all my wp installs to the latest version mainly for security fixes, it’s a pain to have to jump through extra hoops just to post (each updated section has its own pop-up notifications). After more than 2 decades on the innertubes, I *hate* pop-ups :/

    and stay off my lawn!

    Generally, the majority of WordPress users have one blog, so it’s always one click to dismiss each new notice.

    Then there are the few of us, with multiple blogs, who get to click it just a few more times. 🙂

    Gotta tell ya, that’s one heck of a way to intro distraction free writing…

    Very true, with that said though, would have noticed there was a new and improved DFW mode if you weren’t following WordPress news?
