WordPress 5.5  is web software you can use to create a website, blog, or app.

Hundreds of community volunteers built the core software. When you’re ready for more, there are thousands of plugins and themes available to transform your site into almost anything you can imagine. Over 60 million people have chosen WordPress to power the place on the web they call “home.”

WordPress 5.5 New Features
WordPress 5.5 will be the second major release of 2020 and aims to include a navigation menus block, automatic updates for plugins and themes, a block directory, XML sitemaps, lazy loading, and update Gutenberg to the latest release version as we continue to focus in 2020 on full site editing via Gutenberg.

In this article, WPThemeGo will introduce you some main new features of WordPress 5.5.

Auto-Updates for Themes and Plugins
The upcoming WordPress 5.5 update will expand the content management system’s auto-updating capabilities to themes and plugins.

Currently, auto-updating is only available for the WordPress CMS core. To prevent the site hacks, the auto-update functionality will be extended to themes and plugins. Auto-updating of themes and plugins is now expected to ship with the next version of WordPress (v5.5).

Feature Plugin: XML Sitemaps
As the native XML Sitemaps in WordPress Core which received lots of interest and feedback from the community, the XML Sitemap feature plugin (MVP) will be implemented in this version.

As a quick reminder of what this project is trying to achieve, here are the main features as described in the initial project proposal, which we would encourage you to read in its entirety.

XML Sitemaps will be enabled by default making the following content types indexable

– Homepage
– Posts page
– Core Post Types (Pages and Posts)
– Custom Post Types
– Core Taxonomies (Tags and Categories)
– Custom Taxonomies
– Users (Authors)

Additionally, the robots.txt file exposed by WordPress will reference the sitemap index.

Additionally, an XML Sitemaps API ships with the plugin aiming for developers to build on top of it.

The sitemap index
A crucial feature of the sitemap plugin is the sitemap index. This is the main XML file that contains the listing of all the sitemap pages exposed by your WordPress site and the time each was last modified. By default, the plugin creates a sitemap index at /sitemap.xml which includes sitemaps for all supported content, separated into groups by post types, taxonomies, and users.

Sitemap pages
Each sitemap page will be available at a URL using the following structure, sitemap-{object-type}-{object-subtype}-{page}.xml. Some examples of this structure applied to real content include:

Post type – posts: sitemap-posts-post-1.xml
Post type – pages: sitemap-posts-page-1.xml
Taxonomy – categories: sitemap-taxonomies-category-1.xml
Users – sitemap-users-1.xml (note that the WP_User object doesn’t support sub-types)
The official sitemaps protocol asserts that each sitemap can contain a maximum of 50,000 URLs and must be no larger than 50MB (52,428,800 bytes). However, in practice, the performance begins to degrade when trying to generate a query that returns more than a few thousand URLs, so for that reason, the developer team decided to limit the default implementation to a maximum of 2,000 URLs per sitemap, which can be modified by using a filter on the core_sitemaps_max_urls hook.

Sitemap pages for each public post type (except attachments) will be generated, which include URLs to individual post pages. Likewise, sitemaps will be generated for all public taxonomies, which include URLs to taxonomy archive pages, and sitemaps will be generated for all users with published public posts, which includes the URL for each user’s author archive page. The list of supported sub-types for posts and taxonomies can be filtered using the core_sitemaps_post_types and core_sitemaps_taxonomies filters, respectively. Additionally, URLs for any object type can be added or removed using the following filters:

Post types: core_sitemaps_posts_url_list
Taxonomies: core_sitemaps_taxonomies_url_list
Users: core_sitemaps_users_url_list
Lazy-Loading Images
Lazy-loading images has been a commonly used mechanism to significantly improve page-load performance for several years. For the WordPress ecosystem alone, there are a myriad of plugins that enable lazy-loading.
