Fourteen 10uppers Contribute to WordPress 6.5

Earlier this month, WordPress released version 6.5, “Regina”, bringing significant editorial experience improvements, including the much-anticipated Font Library. Fourteen 10uppers contributed to Regina, a reflection of 10up’s commitment to giving back to the open web.

WordPress 6.5 empowers site and content managers with several editorial experience enhancements, including:

  • A brand new Font Library, enabling typography management directly in the Site Editor.
  • A smoother, more controlled drag & drop experience when rearranging blocks in the list view.
  • The introduction of Data Views to better organize data in pages, templates, patterns, and template parts — editors can choose between a table or grid view, and easily make bulk changes.
  • A more in-depth revisions feature, providing editor names, time stamps, and short descriptions of work done on all content.

Regina also comes with 110+ performance updates across the Site and Post Editors, cutting the load time in half and accelerating typing processing by 5x compared to WordPress 6.4.

WordPress 6.5 is named after the award-winning jazz artist Regina Carter, whose talent and creativity expanded the possibilities of the violin and influenced the future of jazz.

Fabian Kaegy, Associate Director of Editorial Engineering, served as an Editor Triage Lead for the release. Associate Director of Engineering Joe McGill and Senior Web Engineer Mukesh Panchal were Performance Co-Leads, and Peter Wilson was a Noteworthy Contributor to Regina.

Thank you to all fourteen 10uppers who contributed to the 6.5 release: Ankit Gupta, Derek Herman, Dharmesh Patel, Faisal Alvi, Felipe Elia, Jeffrey Paul, Karthik Thayyil, Lukas Pawlik, Sam Sidler, and Sumit Bagthariya.
