Weekly WordPress News: WordPress 5.0 Further Pushed Back
A little while ago, the core team pushed the expected WordPress 5.0 release date from November 19 to November 27. Well, as the fact that there’s still no WordPress 5.0 indicates, that release date has been pushed back again.
In their release post for the WordPress 5.0 Release Candidate 1, the team only said that “A final release date will be announced soon, based on feedback on the RC.”
Beyond that, we’ve got some great development topics, as well as a guide to FTP for regular WordPress users.
Let’s get to all of this week’s news…
