WordPress 5.0 Update

It appears that WordPress is delaying the release of WordPress 5.0 until possibly some time this fall. As such, we will not update our WordPress at UNC Asheville multisite to the new version until next spring or summer. At that time, we will offer workshops and webinars on the new version and the new Gutenberg editor.
