WordPress 4.9 is out as of November 15, 2017! This is great news. I always look at a new WordPress version as sort of the big gift on Christmas morning, and this one is no exception.
WordPress is already one of the most solid and versitile platforms out there for website design, and the new features in every version keeps making it better and better.
As with all version updates, I will be installing it on my own sites first to test and learn, and then roll it out for clients and new websites.

It looks like there will be better workflow features, code error protection, collaboration tools, widget updates and much more.
Thank you WordPress!
