Looking at the upcoming release of Wordpress 5.5.
I’m just curious if other Domains administrators have been looking at the new features and if that will change any guidance they give for new signups or settings in Installatron. The defining feature of Wordpress 5.5 is going to be that themes and plugins can automatically update themselves, much like how Wordpress can automatically update itself for security releases.
I’m wondering if these latest changes to Wordpress have changed the advise we give to students and new site owners with Wordpress between choosing the installatron updater, automatically updating, or logging in and periodically updating.
In my instance we have been pretty aggressive with forcing upgrades… We have been turning off old versions of PHP, etc.
How heavy of a hand do other admins do to try to encourage being on the latest version? Will that change as new updating routines appear in Wordpress?
