This software is still in development, so we don’t recommend you run it on a production site. Consider setting up a test site to play with the new version.
WordPress 5.0 is slated for release on November 19, and we need your help to get there. Here are some of the big issues that we fixed since Beta 1:
We’ve updated to the latest version of the block editor from the Gutenberg plugin, which includes the new Format API, embedding improvements, and a variety of bug fixes.
Meta boxes had a few bugs, and they weren’t showing at all in the block editor, so we’ve fixed and polished there.
The Twenty Nineteen repository is a hive of activity, there have been a stack of minor bugs clean up, and some notable additions:
- There’s now a widget area in the page footer.
- Navigation submenus have been implemented for mobile devices.
- Customizer options have been added for changing the theme colors and feature image filters.
The REST API has a couple of bug fixes and performance improvements. PHP 7.3 compatibility has been improved.
