Wordpress 5.4 Album CoverGreat news everyone!  WordPress 5.4 “Adderley” was released yesterday!  The biggest change from the release notes seem to be about the block editor which, love it or hate it, is here to stay:

Every major release adds more to the block editor.

More ways to make posts and pages come alive with your best images. More ways to bring your visitors in, and keep them engaged, with the richness of embedded media from the web’s top services.

More ways to make your vision real, and put blocks in the perfect place—even if a particular kind of block is new to you. More efficient processes.

And more speed everywhere, so as you build sections or galleries, or just type in a line of prose, you can feel how much faster your work flows.

Other improvements include:

  • Two new blocks. And better blocks overall.
    • Two brand-new blocks: Social Icons and Buttons make adding interactive features fast and easy.
    • New ways with color: Gradients in the Buttons and Cover block, toolbar access to color options in Rich Text blocks, and for the first time, color options in the Group and Columns blocks.
    • Guess a whole lot less! Version 5.4 streamlines the whole process for placing and replacing multimedia in every block. Now it works the same way in almost every block!
    • And if you’ve ever thought your image in the Media+Text block should link to something else—perhaps a picture of a brochure should download that brochure as a document? Well, now it can.
  • Cleaner UI, clearer navigation—and easier tabbing!
  • Your fundamental right: privacy
