WordPress 6 - What it includes

The new edition WordPress 6 of the popular CMS, has just been released and includes more than 1000 total changes and additions.

Overall, with each update, Automattic, the company that created WordPress, is slowly and steadily adding new features to the popular platform. The new block editor is the one that receives the most upgrades and in the new version now, it has reached a satisfactory level.

Gutebenrg, as it is called, is the company's solution for easy design through ready-made blocks, to the standards of popular page builders, such as Elementor and WP Visual Bakery.

With the new blocks added in version 6, users have the ability to write more complex articles and each page can become an empty canvas with unlimited possibilities.

In general, the overall experience that a user can write a text has been greatly improved, with small additions to change the style, fonts and easy text selection.

Finally, the developers have largely optimized the overall performance of Wordpress 6, mainly in the loading speed of the editor and the performance in the frontend, greatly reducing the execution of various queries.
