WordPress 5.4 Released

WordPress 5.4 has been released! Along with speed and privacy improvements, this update adds a new Social Icons block, enhancements for the Button block, and 361 bug fixes. For specifics, check out the changelog.

552 volunteers contributed to this release, lead by Matt Mullenweg, Francesca Marano, and David Baumwald. At the time of writing this, WordPress 5.4 has been out for about 30 minutes, and has already been downloaded 137,156 times!

All users can safely update from Dashboard -> Updates or download and update manually, though you should probably backup first just in case, unless you’re already using VaultPress, which you really should be.

If you run into any problems, stop by the known issues first, and please let us know if it’s not covered there!
