Wordpress 5.3 - KirkGreat news everyone!  WordPress 5.3 “Kirk” was released yesterday!  The biggest change from the release notes are the focus on making the ‘block editor’ better, which a lot of people have been asking for:

5.3 expands and refines the block editor with more intuitive interactions and improved accessibility. New features in the editor increase design freedoms, provide additional layout options and style variations to allow designers more control over the look of a site.

This release also introduces the Twenty Twenty theme giving the user more design flexibility and integration with the block editor. Creating beautiful web pages and advanced layouts has never been easier.

Other improvements include:

  • Block Editor Improvements
  • Expanded Design Flexibility
  • Twenty Twenty Theme
  • Automatic Image Rotation
  • Improved Site Health Checks
  • Admin Email Verification
  • PHP 7.4 Compatibility
