New Version: WordPress 5.5 & Templatic Themes

Posted on

Released on August 11th, the latest WordPress version is 5.5 and called ‘Eckstine’. The major improvement areas in this update are speed, visibility as well as security and you can download it from Get WordPress or backup your existing website and update it through your dashboard.

The new version is updated with several new and interesting features for your websites based on WordPress.

What’s new in the new WordPress update?

Every new version of WordPress aims to make it better in terms of user experience and ease of use. The most important changes are:

Lazy loading images for speedier pages

Images are one of the most common culprits slowing down your website. Even though they intend to improve the user experience by making your website more intuitive and interesting, they obviously take longer to load and may result in slower page load times sometimes.

The images will now wait to be loaded until they are to be viewed, which means the lesser load on the servers, quicker response, and avoiding loading of images that are not meant for the device.

Better visibility for your websites

This newer version includes an XML sitemap. And this facilitates the discovery of your new pages as soon as they are published live.

Therefore, more people will find your website and you can have more chances to convert the visitors. You can make the best of the visibility to retain visitors and make them return in the future.

Easy & secure auto-updates for plugins

Now, you can choose the plugins and themes that you want to auto-update. Therefore, you can always have your website up-to-date with the latest versions of all the components.

Moreover, if you don’t want a particular plugin to be auto-updated, you can simply turn it off! You can also manually update your plugins by uploading the zip.

New features for the block editor

New block editor

There are many improvements in the block editor, but here are few of the main addition to the block editor are listed below:

Block pattern: This will let you use a combination of text and media to create beautiful layouts with the editor.
