WordPress 4.9.7

On July 5, the security and maintenance release 4.9.7 was released by the security team – the 4.9.7 version planned for the end of July is now 4.9.8. The release fixes a security issue that allows users with specific capabilities to delete files outside the uploads folder.

Among that, the new version fixes a few bugs. You can find out more on that in the post »WordPress 4.9.7 Security and Maintenance Release« by Aaron D. Campbell.

Update on Gutenberg

Tammie Lister published the post »Update on Gutenberg«, where she outlines the current things that are in progress and the planned things for Gutenberg with the endpoint of releasing it in WordPress 5.0.

So, for example, it is planned to release a 4.9.x release in July where users are invited to install Gutenberg or the Classic Editor plugin.
