  • For the site administrator: a new feature that allows website administrators to manually send a reset password link to existing users, as well a simplified way to meal the http to https switch.
  • For the site developer: new post parent functions that will reduce some of the logic needed/currently used in themes and plugins, and a number of REST API changes.
