I would like to see how good is Twenty Nineteen. Normally the default themes are without bells and whistles.

PHP 7.0 and 5.6 will stop receiving updates as of this December. That accounts to around 57 % of WordPress websites. Make sure you move on and upgrade.

On the above link you can see the official WordPress statistics.

I use minimal plugins. So it easy to keep the WordPress version up to date. Not easy when you have a lot of plugins.

There is a lot of talk on internet about this new editor. From what I heard it allows adding blocks to the page through the editor. Will see how it works. WordPress 5.0 is almost due. One week maximum.

Looks like something is seriously wrong with 5.0. Some serious issues might have popped up in RC1.

WordPress 5.0 comes with a new editor named Gutenberg which supports the use of blocks. Imagine blocks as glass, wood, brick etc while building a wall. Your website can be rich with blocks such as audio, video, file, paragraph, heading, preformatted, quote, image, gallery, cover, columns, code, list, button, embeds etc.

But if you are not a man who loves changes and want to stick with the WordPress you know, you can keep the old editor in use. WordPress will be supporting it till 2021.

WordPress 5.0 also comes with a new default theme called Twenty Nineteen.

Authors can delete posts ? That looks like a serious bug.

Is the beta available for all (in live) or only for testers to test it?
