WordPress 5.7 new features & contributors anticipate performing on the subsequent features within the next release:
Update WordPress Core to incorporate current releases of the Gutenberg plugin
Gutenberg: ship additional blocks, refine the UI, add tools for themes and style , and continue performing on the widget screen
Continue work on auto-updates and jQuery
Improvements in Core
Now you’ll enable lazy-loading of iframes by adding the loading=”lazy” attribute to iframe tags on the front-end.
Migrating from HTTP to HTTPS is streamlined
Switching a WordPress site from HTTP to HTTPS has proven to be a pain for all involved. While on the surface, the location Address and WordPress Address need to be updated, content with embedded HTTP URLs remains unchanged within the database. With this release, migrating a site to HTTPS is now a one-click interaction. URLs within the database are automatically replaced when the location and WordPress Address are both using HTTPS. Also, Site Health now includes an HTTPS status check. Hope you like WordPress 5.7 New Features.
Standardize colors utilized in WP-Admin CSS to one palette
This change collapses all colors utilized in the CSS to at least one of the available reminder blue, green, red, yellow, grey, black, and white. The palette makes it simpler than ever to create components your users can read, because half the range gives you excellent contrast with white type and a half with black, consistent with current accessibility guidelines. Hope you like WordPress 5.7 New Features.
Ongoing cleanup after update to jQuery 3.5.1
jQuery deprecations in WordPress Core and bundled themes show up tons less often, and therefore the notifications make more sense to the user.
New Robots API
The new Robots API allows the filter directives to be included within the ‘robots’ meta tag. Also, the directive max-image-preview:large is now included by default to permit large image previews to be displayed in search engines (unless the blog is marked as not being public).
