WP was 5.2 launched today.
Some new features include:
- Site Health Check
- PHP Error Protection
- Accessibility Updates
- New Dashboard Icons
- Plugin Compatibility Checks
- And more…
Here is maybe the most important note: *If you are running an old version of PHP (less than 5.6.20), update your PHP before installing 5.2.
Read the full details of version 5.2 here: https://wordpress.org/news/2019/05/jaco/
There is already a plugin to remove the Site Health feature from WordPress core in version 5.2.
It is already possible to set which of the Site Health tests you would like to enable on a site using the Site Health Tool Manager plugin.
