Hey, WordPress friends. We are checking in with your latest dose of weekly WordPress news.
This week, a decision was made on whether Full Site Editing (FSE) would land in WordPress 5.8 release. While site editor and global styles will not be landing in this release, other FSE-related features are expected to ship.
