WordPress 5.7 Beta 3

The third Beta is here for the upcoming major release, WordPress 5.7. WordPress 5.7 Beta 3 includes 27 fixes and enhancements to further smoothen your WordPress experience. These enhancements were made after the Beta 2 release.

Since the software is still in development mode, it’s best that you don’t run it on a production site. Consider setting up a test site just to play with the new version. To test WordPress 5.7, try the WordPress Beta Tester plugin (you’ll want “bleeding edge nightlies” and “Beta/RC Only”). Or you can download the beta here (zip).

Let’s now have a quick look at the highlights in WordPress 5.7 Beta 3.
