A variety of changes and additions…

A variety of changes and additions are coming to WordPress 5.1 — developers take note:

  • New “short circuit filters” for WP_User_Query and count_users(). There’s also LIKE support for meta keys.
  • Some developer-focused changes to the Cron API, including new functions and filters that will make “writing a custom storage system for cron events […] substantially easier.”

Jonathan Desrosiers has a good summary of other changes coming in 5.1, which include the ability to set a file path value for WP_DEBUG_LOG.

There have been updates to Gutenberg as well. Version 4.9 brings improvements in performance and documentation, plus a whole range of bug fixes, accessibility updates, and enhancements.
