WordPress 5.0 Available

WordPress 5.0 is a major release with a new editor focused on making publishing content easier than ever.

Say hello to Gutenberg.  Gutenberg allows you to build content using blocks for text, media, code, quotes, etc.  If you prefer – you can also go with the Classic Editor (which will be supported for at least 2 years. (See screenshot below as an example). 

WordPress 5.0 also comes with a beautiful new theme (Twenty Nineteen) which fully utilizes the new block structure introduced in WordPress 5.0.  There are a number of other gems in this release and I encourage you to download the latest release so you can start managing your content more efficiently.

You can read more by looking at the release notes: https://codex.wordpress.org/Version_5.0

If you have not done so already – download the update or simply use your existing installation of WordPress to update your site. Either way – this is an excellent time to make a backup copy of your site(s) before upgrading.
