The first major noticeable addition is there is a new default theme titled Twenty Twenty-One. It provides a great canvas for the block editor and the site editing features as well as a simple design. There are also new sections to use the pattern feature that was added in the 5.5 update.

The Cover and image blocks have added a positioning option to help have the design how you want. The different patterns have been organized into different categories to help group them to make them easier to find.

Keywords have been added to give multiple options to find the same block in the editor section. A character count has been added as the default with the information section at the top and color support has been added for things like the list block.

If you are looking for an option that is hidden by default or not displaying then WordPress has renamed the editor options to preferences to help make it easier to understand the usage for it. WordPress also has enabled the option to activate automatic updates for major WordPress releases as well.

    Hi Arpit, I have updated mine to 5.6, and PHP 8 now works as well. Backup first or use a development site or local site first.

    Major flaw of WP updates is there is no global way to set the font for all paragraphs.
    Some mention in themes, but css coding is the only easy way.
    This really makes no sense to skip this font resize global functionality.
