WordPress 5.0 “Bebo” Released — Here’s How to Install / Upgrade on Ubuntu 16.04 / 18.04 / 18.10

WordPress 5.0, codename “Bebo“,  is now available for download…. This is a major release and brings with it a new block-based editor replacing the classic editor, a new Twenty Nineteen bundled theme and many more…

The primary feature of this release is the new Gutenberg editor that has become the default WordPress experience going forward….

The good new is, if you feel strongly about not using Gutenberg, there’s an installable plugin that you install to bring back the classic editor instead of using Gutenberg editor…

As always, WordPress is the most popular content management system (CMS) available and probably the one with the most support, plugins and themes…

Again, to take advantage of these enhancements, bug fixes and patches, you will want to upgrade your sites…

For most, WordPress upgrades are done automatically…. However, if your environment isn’t setup for automatic upgrade / update then you must manually do the upgrade from the admin dashboard…For more about this release, please check the release page from here
