So, What’s coming new?
Most of the WordPress users have no idea about what’s coming next! We tried to find some points of what’s actually coming new and which things are coming revised with 5.0 update of WordPress.
1. Gutenberg editor and Plugin
The most possible exciting feature coming is the Gutenberg Editor. Gutenberg is an editor for WordPress which is named after Johannes Gutenberg, who is known for the invention of the movable-type printing press. It optimizes for direct manipulation of the visual presentation of the content. The current visual editor requires a lot of us to utilize shortcodes and HTML to make things work. The actual goal is to make this easier, especially for those just starting with WordPress. This is currently in its beta and testing phase, it’s not ready to run on production sites yet so there are a lot of lot of the bugs and issues. We have written a blog on Gutenberg.

2. Security update
Many of us are very much concern about our website security. Any security flaw can be proven very harmful for business. To prevent attacks on our website, WordPress has already introduced some security features. Such as recommending hosting websites with SSL Certificates, two-factor authentication and application passwords. The WordPress authority likely to continue improving its security in future releases.
3. Front-end editor
With Front-end editor, anyone can edit his/her post right on the page. The way it works just like you use the mobile phone and touch screen. Front-end editor has existed along with WordPress for a long time. Visual Composer is dominating front-end editor plugin is for years. On the market recently appeared new front-end editor plugin for WordPress too. In the comparison to Visual Composer, Front-end Editor for WordPress is lighter and faster. Maybe it’s inherited from Customizer framework. Lighter means fewer functions. But you should regard in mind that visual composer is visual composer and front-end editor is front-end editor!
4. Mobile optimization
WordPress authority is trying to improve the mobile experience day by day for both users and developers. Decreasing the differences in website maintenance between desktop and mobile has become a routine for the company. Also, the majority of WordPress themes are now responsive.
5. Crop background image
Formerly we could change our background of our websites. But it’s a boring process. We have to crop it manually then re-upload to the library and select the image again.
Now we will have a chance to crop image before it goes live on website. This is a small action but definitely it will reduce significant time in the changing background image flow
So far, This is all we know about WordPress 5.0 features. We hope there will be a lot of more exciting features on the finale update. All we can say is WordPress is preparing for a really big evolution.
