After a bumpy roll-out last Fall, WordPress tries again with another update to its web development platform. This time, most seem to feel it was a success. Read below:
“WordPress 5.6.2 update safely rolls out with a fix for a bug introduced by the previous update. Publishers are encouraged to update.
WordPress rolled out a bug fix update, version 5.6.2. Aside from an issue affecting Ultimate Addons for Gutenberg plugin, the update is largely successful, publishers are encouraged to update.
WP 5.6.2 is called a Maintenance Update. A maintenance update is one that is meant to fix bugs introduced by a previous update. Because a maintenance update fixes problems, it is generally recommended that publishers update their WordPress to the latest version.
The latest update fixes a problem introduced with version 5.6.1. That issue was called the “Leave site? Changes you made may not be saved” bug. What happens is that on certain pages in the Admin backend, WordPress would spawn a warning that changes that were made would not be saved.
The initial report of the bug described it like this:
“We use custom taxonomies extensively, and as of 5.6.1 today, every custom taxonomy page now prompts with “Leave site? Changes you made may not be saved.” This has never happened before for custom taxonomies and is now quickly getting really annoying.”
This caused considerable confusion in the WordPress publishing community as many were unsure of why they were receiving the warning message.
WordPress publishers are encouraged to update to version 5.6.2 because it contains a bug fix and there are no widespread reports of issues.”
