WordPress 6.0 has been released overnight. This is the first major release for WordPress for 2022.

This major release is named “Arturo” after the Grammy-winning jazz musician Arturo O’Farrill. Arturo is known for his influence on contemporary Latin jazz. He is the son of the late, great Chico O’Farrill.

WordPress is used to power 42.9% (at the time of writing) of the websites on the Internet, which makes it the most popular software for websites on the planet! The next largest is Shopify with 4.9%, so you can see that WordPress is very much the giant of websites across the internet.

How does this impact my website?

If you currently have a site manager by us (BSharp Tech), then we will be planning for an upgrade to WordPress 6 over the coming weeks. We usually don’t rush straight into a new major release on day 0, as we like to be sure there are no major issues before upgrading such as plugin incompatibilities – though most popular plugins will already be updated to include support for WordPress 6.0.

Stay tuned for more information.

How do I get help with the upgrade?
