The Month in WordPress: August 2018

Many of the WordPress contribution teams have been working hard on the new WordPress editor, and the tools, services, and documentation surrounding it. Read on to find out more about this ongoing project, as well as everything else that has been happening around the WordPress community in August. WordPress 4.9.8 is Released WordPress 4.9.8 was released at the beginning of the month.

This release also included some important updates to the privacy tools that were added to Core earlier this year. Want to get involved in building WordPress Core?
