Wordpress 5.0 Is Here by Freeresearch: 11:11pm On Dec 06
On December 6, 2018, WordPress Version 5.0, named for jazz musician Bebo, was released to the public. WordPress 5.0 will revolutionize content editing with introduction of a new block editor and block editor-compatible default theme Twenty Nineteen. For more information on this release, read the WordPress Blog.

For Version 5.0, the database version (db_version in wp_options) updated to 43764, and the Trac revision was 43970.




Some big changes have come to the editing experience in WordPress. A new block-based editor is the first step toward an exciting new future with a streamlined editing experience site-wide.

More flexibility with how content is displayed
Insert any type of multimedia and have it embed automatically
Each piece of content is in its own block and easily maneuverable with mouse or keyboard
Tons of blocks available by default with more to come: paragraph, heading, preformatted text, quote, image, gallery, cover image, video, audio, columns with nested blocks, files, code, and more

Blocks are also reusable and many can easily be converted from one type to another. This new editing experience provides a more consistent treatment of design as well as content.
New Default Theme: Twenty Nineteen

Introducing Twenty Nineteen, a new default theme that shows off the power of the new editor.

Designed for the block editor
Simple, type-driven layout
Versatile design for all sites



Classic Editor


Prefer to stick with the familiar Classic Editor? No problem! Support for the Classic Editor plugin will remain in WordPress through 2021.

The Classic Editor plugin restores the previous WordPress editor and the Edit Post screen.

Classic Editor lets you:

Keep using plugins that extend it
Keeps old-style meta boxes
Allows your to continuing using functionality otherwise dependent on the legacy editing experience

Have you tested the twenty nineteen theme? If you have, what is your verdict, is it good?

This Block Editor is not interesting. Had to do install Classic Editor plugin.

Who understands the block editor?
