WordPress 5.2 will be the second major release of the application in 2019, there are plans to be included features like Site Health Check, new block directory, and
PHP error protection.
According to the release schedule on the WordPress.org website the target date for release of WordPress 5.2 is May 7, 2019.
There are also many “under the hood improvements” in WordPress 5.2 for the developers:
- Users will be able to provide a log file path when adding the “WP_DEBUG_LOG” directive in the wp-config.php file. #18391
- Plugins will be able to specify the minimum required PHP version. #40934
- Dashicons, the default icon font used for the WordPress admin area will have 25 new icons to use. #41074
Another big part of the “under the hood improvements” which are designed not only for the developers but also for the every day end-user of WordPress will be the performance improvements over the block editor. The new WordPress block editor, since version 5.0 is much faster than the classic editor. However, it could get slow when editing longer posts/pages with many blocks. WordPress 5.2 addressed that with significant performance improvements. With the new update of WordPress the load time for big posts and pages will be reduced with whole 35%, which at this point is remarkable achievement!
