WordPress 5.8 Field Guide

WordPress 5.8 release cycle is different than previous ones in several ways but release squad navigates it with ease, even though not entirely without pressure. One of these differences is a decision to include, initially not planned, Beta 4 into the release cycle. This is not such a surprise when you know that there are 93 enhancements and feature requests, 158 bug fixes and 25 other blessed tasks, which brings us to 276 Trac tickets in total.
