Though WordPress 5.3 isn’t slated for release until November, we just got our first look at what’s on the way with WordPress 5.3 Beta 1. Expect lots of improvements to the block editor plus tons of other goodies and the new default Twenty Twenty theme.
If you download the beta, you’ll be able to check out the new default theme in action, as well.
