WordPress 3.6 with new short codes for post formats

As recently announced on the WordPress blog, WordPress 3.6 is going to have new short codes to theme the post formats.

For theme developers that means that the_content() will be supplied with functions like the_image() and the_video().

This is going to be great, because in the nightly build of WordPress the post format specific fields are prepended into the post content.

I see this as a great way of making the new features and the more approachable editor UI accessible to theme developers.
