WordPress 6.2 RC1 postponed, additional Beta 5 added

The release party for WordPress 6.2 Release Candidaterelease candidate One of the final stages in the version release cycle, this version signals the potential to be a final release to the public. Also see alpha (beta). 1 will be postponed from March 7th to March 9th at 17:00 UTC due to a regression in the Site Editor found as far back as Beta 1.

A solution has already been implemented in GutenbergGutenberg The Gutenberg project is the new Editor Interface for WordPress. The editor improves the process and experience of creating new content, making writing rich content much simpler. It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc. https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/. An additional BetaBeta A pre-release of software that is given out to a large group of users to trial under real conditions. Beta versions have gone through alpha testing in-house and are generally fairly close in look, feel and function to the final product; however, design changes often occur as part of the process. 5 will be released tomorrow March 7th, at 17:00 UTC, instead of RC1, to allow for proper testing of this solution.

The cycle page has been updated accordingly. Thank you for your patience and continuous commitment to making WordPress!
