Welcome to the first of my weekly Remkus’ Roundup post. This is the beginning of a series where I’ll share what’s happening in the WordPress community. Let’s start with this week!
The road to WordPress 5.0
In case you’ve missed it, WordPress 5.0 is considered a major release with the inclusion of a completely new editor experience named Gutenberg. We’re very excited about the possibilities that Gutenberg adds to WordPress. So much so, that if you’ve activated the Gutenberg plugin on your site, we’ve added two blocks to the editor already.
Following Mullenweg’s post, the second post I’d like to highlight is Gary Pendergast’s post on the same blog. It’s about the Proposed WordPress 5.0 scope and schedule. In it, he outlines a proposed schedule that looks like this:
- Beta 1: October 19, 2018
- RC 1: October 30, 2018
- Release: November 19, 2018
Meaning, that if all goes well, WordPress 5.0 will be available before the end the year. I myself, couldn’t be more excited about this!
Bonus blog post: Gary Pendergast’s call to action post on his own blog about to get involved with the integration of Gutenberg into WordPress 5.0 is worth a read as well.
