The target release date for WordPress 5.0 is less than two weeks away and, well, some people are pointing out some reasons why it might not quite be ready for primetime. Do you agree? While Gutenberg is generally growing on me, there are still a lot of bugs, and I would tend to agree that it needs a delay.
Beyond that, WordImpress is now just Impress.org, and we have some great reviews for you. Uncanny Automator might be one of the coolest new plugins we’ve found – so definitely check that out (it helps you automate WordPress like Zapier).
