WordPress 5.0 is set to be released on November 27, 2018 – just after Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
This comes after some pushback from the community about the original date of November 19.
Still, there is some pushback to postpone the release even further due to Gutenberg not being ready for release.
Our CEO, Erick Danzer, has written a detailed article which is also a plea to the community. We hope you give it a good read.
