Changelog: Deploy now with WordPress 5.0

Shifter now supports the latest WordPress version 5.0!

This release was announced at WordCamp US 2018 in Nashville. WordPress 5.0 was the largest release ever for WordPress Core and comes complete with a new theme for 2019, new block-based content editor, and more.

5.0 includes the hotly debated Gutenberg editor which replaces the tried and true TinyMCE and if you’re not a fan, no worries, the Classic Editor plugin is still available for anyone who wants to use that. Both editing options and experiences are still supported on Shifter sites.

Safe Mode Updates

With the stable release of the twenty-nineteen theme, launching in safe mode will now use this by default. For more information about twenty-nineteen, check out the official release notes.
