2. Security Update
Website security is a crucial part of any brand or business. Thus, WordPress has introduced various security features in order to prevent any kind of security attack. This includes recommending hosting websites with two-factor authentication, SSL certificates, and application passwords. Security is most likely to continuously improve in the 5.0 release, thereby offering security against cyber attacks and data breaches.
3. Frontend Editor
Another update is the frontend editor, which lets you edit your post right on the page itself, just like you would change text on your mobile phone. While this feature has existed on WordPress since long as the Visual Composer, the frontend editor is much faster and lighter comparatively. However, these features will continue to coexist simultaneously.
4. Mobile Optimization
WordPress has been continuously striving to improve the mobile experience for both users and developers by reducing the differences between desktop and mobile. Hence, a majority of WordPress themes are now mobile friendly and make mobile browsing much smoother.
5. Resizing Background Images
Resizing the background images of websites was a tedious procedure as it involved manually cropping and then uploading them. However, the latest update gives you a chance to crop your image directly on WordPress, thus saving you a lot of effort and time.
To sum it up, WordPress 5.0 will turn out to be the most significant update, especially because of the Gutenberg editor and the mobile-centric themes.
