As people who work hours and hours with WordPress, I hate when a new version is out and people start writing really long posts about the new update. That is why we are making a short list of the most important parts of the update.
Big Changes are:
- Better personalization –
- Shortcodes work in text widgets
- Better editor for editing live code – CSS, PHP, HTML, XML, JSON, MD, JS and much more
- SWFUpload is fully removed
- Save editing of PHP files – if you make an error in the code it will go back to the last “save state”.
- MySQL and IPv6 are now friends
- Now it works with PHP 7.2
These are the important changes of this version. You can see them here, but at least for me, these are the more important ones.
