WordPress 5.1 has just been released. Technically, this is considered a “major” updated, but most users won’t notice much of a change. For most site owners, that’s a good thing.

This short video brings you up to speed on the latest changes. The big one is PHP version checking. But you may also notice that the Gutenberg block editor is speedier. That’s great news for anyone trying to use Gutenberg to it’s fullest potential.

As always, be sure to backup your website before upgrading.
