WordPress 5.1 Release Candidate is now available!
This means that a new version is ready for release.
The new version is scheduled to be released on Thursday, February 21.
So! What’s in WordPress 5.1?
Inspired by Archie Bell & The Drells, WordPress’s theme for 2019 is to “tighten up”, and 5.1 focuses on exactly that.
Introduction of the first Site Health Checks.
WordPress will start showing notices to admin of sites that run long-outdated versions of PHP, the programming language that powers WordPress.
It will also check if a plugin requires a version of PHP incompatible with your site. If so, it will prevent you from installing that plugin.
The new block editor has kept improving since its introduction in WordPress 5.0.
WordPress 5.1 includes solid performance improvements within the editor.
The editor should feel a little quicker to start, and typing should feel smoother.
