Most Notable Changes:

 

Gutenberg Block Based Editor – The Gutenberg editor is a drastic change from the previously use WordPress editor. Gutenberg uses content blocks that are aimed at making things quicker and more efficient for WordPress users when editing their website or blog. Gutenberg’s overall goal is to make writing content for a site more streamlined.

 

NOTE: If you do not like or do not want to use the new Gutenberg editor the WordPress team has a plugin called “Classic Editor” which will let you edit your WordPress content using the same editor that most people are used to that was used in the previous versions of WordPress.

 

Twenty Nineteen Theme – This new default WordPress theme is a versatile theme that is geared towards being very minimalist in design. This new theme was built specifically for the new Gutenberg editor.

 

Background Image Cropping – Although this isn’t a huge change in WordPress it is one that makes changing and editing the background image that you use for your website or blog easier and can help save time since you can crop your background image directly in WordPress itself before the background goes live.

 

 

As you can see, there have been some great changes added to WordPress 5.0. There are many other changes including some security changes to help improve the overall security of a website or blog as well as many other changes, improvements and fixes to help to improve a site using WordPress. Constantly improving, updating and securing a site is something that WordPress is very well known for.
