After, what seemed like a long wait, WordPress 5.3 is finally here. Right on time. Congratulations to the WordPress team. I just finished upgrading my blog to the latest version of WordPress. I’ve been waiting to try out the final version of the brand new TwentyTwenty theme that ships with the latest version of WordPress.
My blog is currently running the TwentyTwenty theme. There are a few noticeable UI glitches, but, I’m OK with them. I definitely don’t want to switch back to the old theme because of these bugs. I’m sure these will be fixed soon. I haven’t investigated these bugs yet. These could even be caused by any of the plugins I’m using.
Besides the new theme, there are a few UI changes to the Admin side of the site. I’m excited to try out the new features of the updated Block Editor that ships with WordPress 5.3.
If I find anything more interesting about this release, I’ll definitely update this post. Until then, here’s the official release notes for this release https://wordpress.org/news/2019/11/kirk/
