Release of WordPress 5.0 is just a couple of weeks away. Before general availability, the core developers behind the content management system are trying best to fix as many issues as possible. Currently, they have released the 3rd beta version of WordPress 5.0.
WordPress 5.0 Beta 3 comes with updates to block editor to include all features and bug fixes from the upcoming Gutenberg 4.2 release. It has added support for Custom Fields meta box, improved reliability of Rest API requests, and several minor tweaks.
Further, updates have been made to WordPress’s Twenty Nineteen theme from its GitHub repository. The theme now comes with support for Selective Refresh Widgets in the Customizer, as well as support for Responsive Embeds.
Twenty Nineteen theme has also been improved for readability and functionality on mobile devices. There are fixes to some errors in older PHP versions and in IE11.
WordPress users can try the Beta 3 version on a test site to play with WordPress 5.0. It is recommended not to use it on a production site before the general availability, as it is still under development. It is expected to release on November 19.
To try the beta version, use WordPress Beta Tester plugin or download it from here.
WordPress is also on a mission to translate the CMS into more than 100 languages. It welcomes developers to contribute with coding or test changes to make the CMS error-free.
“We have a multitude of bug scrubs scheduled this week, we’d love to have as many people as we can be ensuring all bugs reported get the attention they deserve,” wrote WordPress.
