This is what this new version has:
1.- The Scheduler and Saved Drafts
Sometimes you want to make a major change in a page or blog, these design changes had to be done globally on the site and massively, causing each design movement to be an “all or nothing”. With this new feature, WordPress allows us to make these changes in a scheduled manner, saving design drafts and monitoring in a controlled manner when these changes are reflected in the site where we are working.
This change replaces the previous unique “Publish” feature that sent the changes to our published site immediately. Now we can treat the style of our sites as if they were content, taking care when and how we publish them.
We can work on the design and have it ready in our WordPress to release it at the right time, without having to wait of a new design or version. In addition we can see a preview of the changes made without having to publish or have a previous environment or development.
2.- The Syntax Errors Reviewer
Now WordPress helps you with the correction of errors in your CSS code. With this tool it is easy to identify errors in your design of styles since in addition to marking errors it gives you tips and clues on how to correct it.
If you are an expert Front End developer, you can deactivate this feature on your profile page.
These are 2 of the main improvements, but there are more.
- New widgets to add galleries, videos and other media in your content.
- When changing Themes the widgets will remain in the place where you had them with the previous theme.
- Find and have a preview of new Themes, with this change you can search and see what your site looks like with more than 2,600 topics before making a change in the productive version of your page or blog.
- The creation of Menus is now more intuitive than in previous versions.
