Today there is a new release of the core WordPress open source software, version 4.8 "Evans", named in honor of the great jazz pianist Bill Evans. On the dashboard the news section now lets you know of meetups and WordCamps in your area, so you can get involved in your local community. There are several new widgets for images, video, audio, and the text widget now has visual editing, making editing sidebars much more accessible for non-coding folks and setting the path for our plans with the Gutenberg editor. There's a change to the visual WYSIWYG editor that's hard to describe but hopefully is a joy for you to experience. There's more, check out the post above. As always, you can upgrade WP from inside your dashboard or download it from the usual spots.
