WordPress 5.8 was released yesterday and we’ve been writing extensively about what’s coming in this version for the past few weeks and months. Therefore, at this point there is only a reference to yesterday’s summary blog article. In the said article you will also find the links to the individual articles.
Personally, I’m looking forward to the support for the new WebP graphics format. I have already written about this and I am very satisfied with the result. The preview image with the cover art for the manual in this article has a file size that’s more than 15 percent smaller, and that’s a lot.
Don’t forget that I’ve already optimized the original PNG graphic to the max. For photos, where there are less clear lines than the illustrations, I expect even better results.
As we are already during late beta phase with updating our WordPress manual started, it’s already finished today.
On the corresponding subpage you will find the prices and further information:
