In WordPress 5.5, your website is revolutionized in: speed, search, and security.

On August 11, 2020, WordPress Released much needed version with updates that brings hot functionalities as a core build. Not only this, it has also brought up updated libraries of default PHP mailer function (going from version 5.2.27 to 6.1.6), and SimplePie, Twemoji, Masonry, imagesLoaded, getID3, Moment.js, and clipboard.js.
