The major new features in WPML 3.2 are listed in WPML 3.2 changelog entry. These include a new workflow for the Translation Management, new translation services, better taxonomy translation much improved performance and more.
Why Manual Updates?
WPML 3.2 include heavy rewrites of much of the code. It comes with new features, many fixes and a lot of overall improvements. In our testing, we tried to cover as many themes and plugins as we could. We are also running WPML 3.2 on our own sites and it’s all working smoothly.
We know that such a big update may have corner cases with different code. So, we have suspended the automatic updates and are encouraging clients to update manually. This way, if your site has any issues, we can help you faster.
