WordPress plans to continue working on security and stability

WordPress shows no signs of slowing down and is currently about five years into a ten-year project that involves rewriting its entire code base.

In a recent interview, Josepha Haden Chomphosy, CEO of WordPress, told SEJ:

“…next year, as with every year on a project like that, will ensure that we continue to be as stable and capable of a CMS as people have come to expect as we continue to push forward with a newer, more modern way to manage your content online.” ”.

WordPress implemented the Arturo 6.0 version change this month and within two weeks, 36.2% of WP sites had been updated.

Roger Montti reported that WordPress shared a proposal for a plugin checker that would improve site security and performance by also proactively testing plugins.
