Version 5.2 of WordPress, named “Jaco” in honor of renowned and revolutionary jazz bassist Jaco Pastorius, is now available for update in your WordPress dashboard.

Improvements for Everyone

Accessibility Updates

A number of changes work together to improve contextual awareness and keyboard navigation flow for those using screen readers and other assistive technologies.

New Dashboard Icons

Thirteen new icons including Instagram, a suite of icons for BuddyPress, and rotated Earth icons for global inclusion. Find them in the Dashboard and have some fun!

Plugin Compatibility Checks

WordPress will now automatically determine if your site’s version of PHP is compatible with installed plugins. If the plugin requires a higher version of PHP that your site currently uses, WordPress will not allow you to activate it, preventing potential compatibility errors.

Updating WordPress

WordPress makes it very easy to upgrade to the newest version once it’s available. Prior to updating, we recommend that you make a full backup of your website files.

When you’re logged into your WordPress account, look for Updates in the menu. If you see an orange circle next to the word with a number next to it, click on it.

If WordPress is out of date, you’ll see a message telling you about the new version and a button you can press to make the upgrade.

While you’re on this page, you can also quickly upgrade all your plugins and themes that are out of date as well. It’s a quick and easy way to make your website more secure.
