Upgrading WordPress / Space Blog

Borrowing this idea from Quim.

If you are interested in software updates to the blog software, please subscribe to this topic and we will try to keep you posted.

WordPress 5.3 was released on the 12th of November. I’ve just updated the Space blog to it (after making backups and updating the plugins!).

Of note is some great improvements to the block editor. Accessibility and some new design options when laying out comments. There is also a new option to create “Predefined layouts” for reuse.

There is also a new default theme. Which comes along about once a year in the WordPress world. It is very nice. No plans to switch to it, but for the future it might be something we consider using.
