The third Beta is here for the upcoming major release, WordPress 6.0. WordPress 6.0 Beta 3 includes 10+ 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, you shouldn’t run it on a production site. Consider setting up a test site just to play with the new version.
To test WordPress 6.0, try the WordPress Beta Tester plugin (you’ll want the “bleeding edge” channel and “Beta/RC Only” stream). Or you can download the beta here (zip). Or, you can also use WP-CLI to test the update: wp core update –version=6.0-beta3
The major release, WordPress 6.0 is on for May 24, 2022. It is our responsibility to help the team roll out the major release with minimal (to no) issues. Therefore, let’s start testing!
