🧪 WordPress 5.7 Beta 1 is…
🧪 WordPress 5.7 Beta 1 is now available for testing. It includes several enhancements such as lazy-load iframes, ongoing cleanup after the update to jQuery 3.5.1, and a new Robots API. Improvements to the block editor are in there too, of course. Finally, there is a very helpful streamlining of migrations from HTTP to HTTPS:
“Switching a WordPress site from HTTP to HTTPS has proven to be a pain for all involved. While on the surface, the Site Address and WordPress Address have to be updated, content with embedded HTTP URLs remains unchanged in the database.
With this release, migrating a site to HTTPS is now a one-click interaction. URLs in the database are automatically replaced when the Site and WordPress Address are both using HTTPS. Also, Site Health now includes an HTTPS status check.”
