Yep, I do manual updates and I recently updated this WP blog to the latest version, which is 5.7. On a user’s perspective, nothing seems to be new as I’m using the classic editor. I hate the Gutenberg editor and they have a new one now, it seems like Gutenberg, but an improved one.
Automattic also said that the dashboard has a simplier color palette. But I didn’t notice any significant difference. Only the button seems to be using a lighter blue color compared to the blue color before.
As you can see in the screenshot below, nothing’s really new.
Looking forward for more WordPress updates in the future. For now, I’ll still be using the classic editor. It’s simple, it’s clean, and it’s classic. No other drag and drop gimmicks, just plain old text and plain old code. You can actually do whatever you want with no code bloat vs dnd page/post editors.
