WordPress 3.3 has been released and it is having lot many new features. One of them is the flyout menu which is really helpful as you don’t need to open each segment on Dashboard to see content inside that main menu. For example, if you want to edit your theme, you just need to hover your mouse on “Appearance” section and then you can see “Editor” as part of the flyout menu.
If you are having lot many WordPress plugins installed on your WordPress setup, you may have lot many options listed under “Settings” panel. And every time you need to do some customization on a plugin, you need to scroll down to find the option under “Settings” panel for that plugin. Now you don’t need to do that.
Here is the screenshot of the settings panel with flyout menu from one of my blog setup and you can see how easy it is to find the settings option for installed plugins.

This new menu style is space saver as you can see all the installed options without scrolling the page (if you are not having lot many plugins with individual tab options). For example, MobilePress, Contact Form 7 etc. in the above screenshot.
