What is new in WordPress 5.0?

WordPress 5.0 is scheduled to be released on Tuesday- November 27, what we know so far is that the new BlockEditor, Gutenberg, will be officially a part of WordPress core; This new editor will give developers and designers greater control over content creation and editing. Gutenberg is designed around the block-based approached, each element in the blog is called block and you can add, edit or customize individual blocks – pictures, sentences, and tables – with greater flexibility. You can explore the new editor by clicking here.

To experience the true freedom and rich features offered by Gutenberg, WordPress 5.0 will launch a new default theme, Twenty Nineteen. The new theme is simple yet sophisticated and gives you total freedom to customize the layout and design.

WordPress 5.0 supports new Internationalisation (i18n) – JavaScript. This new feature makes it easier to localize themes and plugins.
