WordPress 5.9 Release Date Postponed

The WordPress 5.9 release date has been moved from mid-December to the end of January.

WordPress developers have decided to delay the release date of WordPress 5.9, the next major version of the popular content management system (CMS), to January 2022 after some developers expressed concerns about the speed of development.

Addison Stavlo, WordPress contributor to Gutenberg editor, said, “I think there are some big red flags here that things are not ready for 5.9…. “Overall, it looks like we’re rushing things dangerously right now,” he said.

Normally WordPress 5.9 release mid-December 2021 was planned. On the other hand, things didn’t go smoothly during the alpha release cycle, forcing the core developers to make a few changes.

Tonya Mork, Key Technology Lead for version 5.9, shared that the team has two options when announcing the revised schedule; either porting major features with unresolved issues to WordPress 6.0 or delaying the release of WordPress 5.9. After careful deliberation, the core developers decided that issues should be addressed now, not later.

5.9 is still in the feature freeze phase, and Mork stresses that developers will use the extended development time to fix the issues and help 5.9 reach a Stable state.
