WordPress on a way of A Little Better Every Day with the release of new version 5.1 named “Betty”. Codename is in the honour of acclaimed jazz vocalist Betty Carter. It is a polished release following the major version 5.0 with the new block editor. This release is primarily focused about the improvement of overall performance of the editor.
Here are some major features of WordPress 5.1 “Betty”,
With security and speed in mind, this release introduces WordPress’s first Site Health features. WordPress will start showing notices to administrators of sites that run long-outdated versions of PHP, which is the programming language that powers WordPress.
When installing new plugins, WordPress’s Site Health features will check whether a plugin requires a version of PHP incompatible with your site. If so, WordPress will prevent you from installing that plugin.
Introduced in WordPress 5.0, the new block editor continues to improve. Most significantly, WordPress 5.1 includes solid performance improvements within the editor. The editor should feel a little quicker to start, and typing should feel smoother.
Expect more performance improvements in the next couple of releases.
