The news out of Matt Mullenweg last night was...
That day, December 6 (2018), is the next target release date for WordPress 5.0.
If you have been paying attention to WordPress, or listening to any of my reports into the For Immediate Release (FIR) podcast over the last, say, year or so, you would know that WordPress 5.0 is a huge departure from all previous WordPress releases. The big change is the replacement of the default text editor with the new "Gutenberg" block-based editor.
Personally, I'm rather excited about the change. I've been using Gutenberg on a number of my sites and really like how much you can do with it.
But... reaction within the WordPress community and ecosystem has been decidedly mixed.
We'll see if it happens! But if you are a WordPress site operator, get ready! 5.0 is coming soon!
