New WordPress version released: v4.9.8 – Gutenberg is around the corner!

A new WordPress version was just released. It includes some bug fixes and compatibility improvements. It also adds some more notices that will encourage users to try the new WordPress editor that will come in the WordPress 5.0 update, named Gutenberg.

Most users will now be presented with a notice in their WordPress dashboard. This “Try Gutenberg” is an opportunity for users to use the Gutenberg block editor before it is released in WordPress 5.0.

In WordPress 4.9.8, the callout will be shown to the following users:

  • If Gutenberg is not installed or activated, the callout will be shown to Admin users on single sites, and Super Admin users on multisites.
  • If Gutenberg is installed and activated, the callout will be shown to Contributor users and above.
  • If the Classic Editor plugin is installed and activated, the callout will be hidden for all users

  • The type of request being confirmed is now included in the subject line for all privacy confirmation emails.
  • Improved consistency with site name being used for privacy emails in multisite.
