WordPress 5.8 Beta 1 has finally been announced! The new update for WordPress looks to mainly be geared towards blocks and items associated with them. It also is removing compatibility with Internet Explorer 11! This alone should make developers and designers rejoice knowing they no longer have to cater to a legacy oddball browser!
Going back to blocks you will soon be able to use them in Widget areas a well! This should bring a long needed update to the widget area!
