Last week marked the debut of the first release candidate for WordPress 6.4. Our tests show that WPML is ready for it, but every site has a unique setup. We encourage you to test how your multilingual site works with WordPress 6.4 and report any issues to us.
What’s New in WordPress 6.4
Set for release on November 7th, WordPress 6.4 promises features that enhance your site building experience. From design to content creation, highlights include:
- A new default theme, Twenty Twenty-Four, designed for versatility across website types
- Custom categories for organizing patterns and lightbox functionality for images
- Improved keyboard shortcuts for smoother writing and a redesigned Command Palette to speed up your workflow
… and more!
With the WordPress 6.4 Release Candidate 1 version available since October 17th, you can already explore the many enhancements and bug fixes awaiting in the editor and WordPress core.
Test WordPress 6.4 with WPML
We keep a close eye on the development of WordPress to make WPML ready for major WordPress releases before they go live.
Our development team ran a full range of tests on the WordPress 6.4 Release Candidate 1 with WPML. Great news! So far, we haven’t detected any issues.
But, as every site is unique, we recommend that you do at least basic testing on a copy of your own site. If you find any issues please report them to our support. We can immediately jump in and fix them, making sure everything runs smoothly on the day of the WordPress 6.4 release.
How to Get WordPress 6.4 Release Candidate
You should avoid testing release candidates on live sites. Always use a site copy.
When you’re ready to start testing just download the WordPress 6.4 Release Candidate RC1 version and install it on a copy of your site!
