With WordPress 5.8 launching on July 20th, Anne McCarthy has compiled a list of the most important resources that will best prepare theme authors. 📚
If you had to choose only the top 3, Anne recommends:
- Review the Make Themes summary of theme features in 5.8.
- Read the Dev Notes on introducing theme.json and layout and content width for more specifics about block theme updates.
- Check out an updated scope of remaining site editing projects to get a sense of what’s to come beyond 5.8.
