Q&As to help promote 5.5

The Global Marketing Team is currently working on a project to support the upcoming WordPress 5.5 ReleaseRelease A release is the distribution of the final version of an application. A software release may be either public or private and generally constitutes the initial or new generation of a new or upgraded application. A release is preceded by the distribution of alpha and then beta versions of the software.. We have been bringing together questions from developer feedback and answering them in a document for each significant feature to be introduced in the forthcoming WordPress 5.5 release.

With a group of developers and communications people in the team, we are answering questions to the following changes in WordPress 5.5, based on the available information:

  • Lazy loading
  • Auto-update for plugins and themes 
  • jQuery
  • Image editor
  • XML sitemaps
  • 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/ update
  • BlockBlock Block is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor. The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience. directory repository

If you want to help with these topics or want to contribute, join the #marketing channel or reach out directly to the following people in the Make WordPress SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/.: @nullbyte, @vimes1984, @abhanonstopnewsuk

Please be aware that there has already been significant work into the documents in a tight timescale, and we might not be able to include your ideas at this stage. Reach out to us first before you put work into these topics.

The final documents will be handed over to the documentation team to publish them on the developer hub.

We will be working on a end-user centred Q&A after the developer one, incorporating typical questions as users start to use the latest release and its features.
