“Joséphine – WordPress 5.9″ is my latest poem to celebrate the release of WordPress 5.9 on the 25th of January 2022. I’ve just updated it today ( 26th ); changed a few words, and written a new last verse.
Joséphine - WordPress 5.9 was published
just todayyesterday. So if you fancy FSE, now's the time to play.
Over 40 themes to choose from, to install and run. Open the Site Editor. And bish, bash, bosh, you're done.
Maybe it's not that simple. Creating does take time. But building themes no longer means writing code... line after line.
There's global styles to fiddle and template parts to make. And why not use some patterns; the icing on the cake.
The UX is improving. And if that's not enough, the API is more robust for complicated stuff.
Try it out tomorrow Report how you get on. There's more coming in 6.0 You won't have to wait that long.
FSE's the future And soon there'll be a day When you can get your perfect theme no licence fee to pay.
WordPress is getting better, but may not be quite right. If you think you can contribute start doing so tonight. © Copyright Herb Miller 2022

WordPress, while quite popular, may not be the best. But considering percentages, it's way above the rest.
