This is Malcolm Peralty here from PressTitan and this is The WP Minute, Episode 151
The most important news this week is the release of WordPress 5.1 nicknamed “Betty”. It comes with performance improvements and fixes to the block-based editor and adds the start of the new site health features. This release has much more polish than the 5.0 release and is, in my mind, ready for production use, so for those of you holding onto the 4.9 branch of WordPress, you should be safe to update at this point, but please test on a staging environment and have good backups before you do.
