The second major release of WordPress is right around the corner. That’s right. WordPress 5.8 is slated to be released on July 20. This update features the start of moving full site editing into core, although it’s not quite complete or finished. You’ll be able to create new templates and new template parts. Plus there are new blocks, a new block pattern directory, duotone image support and so much more. So let’s dive into what you can expect with WordPress 5.8 when it’s released later this month.
