WordPress 6.5 Beta 1 is ready for download and testing!

Roadmap to 6.5:
WordPress 6.5 is set to be released on March 26th, 2024. This release brings greater design control and optionality, more robust block capabilities with new APIs, access to current block theme functionality for classic themes, and the start of the new admin redesign. More specifically, these significant features include the Font Library for easy global font management, support for Appearance Tools in Classic Themes for more expansive design options, and more robust revisions across the editing experience (including revisions for template parts and templates). New APIs like Interactivity, Custom Fields, and Block Binding expand block capabilities and underpin features like partial sync patterns, and PHP compatibility work ensures alignment with PHP versions. Rollback for plugin and theme updates enhances safety, and bug fixes address various components for an improved user experience. The first taste of the admin redesign as part of phase 3 efforts are planned for this release in an iterative and contained way by bringing a new experience to the template, template part, and pattern lists within the Site Editor.

Adam: New Game Changing Feature Coming To WordPress - Your Page Builder Can't Do This!
This is going to be the most game changing feature to be added to WordPress in a very long time!. It is going to make websites faster and easier to build, manage, and maintain.
Most likely the page builder you are using to build websites does not offer this. Its insane that all WordPress users will get this feature as just part of WordPress in 2 short months.
Now the feature is easy to understand if you have built a website, but it’s hard to explain.
