WordPress’ first version was started in 2003. As of now, WordPress is the platform of choice for over 33% of all sites across the web. The WordPress open source project has evolved again and again over time.

Like every project, the first version was nothing like the version to come. In the particular case of WordPress, we are witnessing bug fixes and other small changes to the CMSwith each new version. Yet, every once in a while a major upgrade of the Content Management System is created and we, the users, are presented with features we never dreamed of.

With the latest major upgrade of WordPress – 5.0, we were presented with the Gutenberg editor, which some love and others are don’t have warm feelings about.

 

Why is the Latest Version of WordPress Important

We figured that after you’ve chosen a Hosting Service for WordPress, and worked on developing your own WordPress Website, as we highly recommend you’ll keep your plugins, and themes up to date. And most importantly, you’ll upgrade WordPress to it’s latest version.

And just to make it easy for you, in this article we’ll keep track on which is the latest WordPress version, so you won’t have to.

As we’ve covered in our article on how to upgrade WordPress, knowing the latest version of WordPress is important so that you won’t use any old version of the CMS, and thus, avoid any security breaches to your website.

 

WordPress Latest Version

As of December 18, 2019, the latest version of WordPress is 5.3.2

If your WordPress is updated to this version when you go to the Upgrades Page in your Admin Panel, you’ll see the following text:

‘You have the latest version of WordPress. Future security updates will be applied automatically.’

WordPress’ latest major upgrade was made at the end of 2018 when version 5.0 Bebo was released. We’ve covered Bebo in details in our blog.
