WordPress 5.0 is out! It includes a new, so called, block editor. This change will also affect you if you have a WordPress website!

You can now build your posts and pages with blocks, and that’s only the start of something bigger.

We believe that working with the Gutenberg block editor is very nice, so we’re happy to see people move to WordPress 5.0. Do make sure you test it on your site, first! Or read our FAQ about the new block editor.
