How will the new version help you in day to day
You must be eager to know the major ways in which the new version will help you in your daily WP management. The above paragraphs must already have given you a better idea of the key usability features. Here are a few more ways in which it will enrich your user experience:
Saving uploading progress
Uploading large images and heavy resources can take time and it seems annoying if the uploading fails in the middle. The new WordPress now supports resuming the upload from the previous progress instead of starting it all over again. For instance, if a large-sized image caused the uploading to fail just after 35% of completion then the WordPress will save 35% progress. So, when you again resume the uploading, it will proceed from 35% instead of restarting from zero.
Automatic Image rotation help your images rotate accurately
during uploading (as per its EXIF rotations)
Default Site Health Checkswith leaner interface
The default Site Health Checker with a lean interface would now tell you whether the site is Okay or Needs Improvement. However, it will not display the scores in percentage depending upon the improvements made.
On the status tab you would see the improvements needed for getting cent percent score.
Date and Time Component
The new version will also allow the users to better manage their data and time components.
The new version has made some key improvements in HTML that
gives it a more valid approach and helps your website to communicate with
search engine bots more efficiently. It is a significant improvement as the
invalid code triggers multiple errors and makes it harder for the bots to index
your site. Additionally, it can also reduce the speed and increase bounce
rates. All these factors can hurt your site- both in the short term (less
conversion rate) and long term (lower ranking or reduced visibility).
The new improvements in codes allows the sites to enjoy better code validity that can significantly reduce the number of warnings that your site has to face while going through the validation routes.
WordPress 5.3 is stated to release this month and the new version will bring some small yet positive changes. It will not only offer a more friendly interface but also enrich the visual appeal of web pages and blog posts.
