Documentation on current version

Reported by: maxallan Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Codex Keywords:


Has a "Current WordPress version" link which takes me to a page about 5.1.1

There is also : https://codex.wordpress.org/Supported_Versions
Which states 5.1.1 is the only supported version.

However, https://wordpress.org/download/releases/
States that 5.2.1 is the latest release and none of the others are safe to use.

So why is the "current" and "supported" version not the latest version and unsafe??

  • Component changed from General to Codex
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

The codex is a wiki. Anybody can edit it. It's also being phased out in favor of the developer documentation at https://developer.wordpress.org/ and the support resource documentation at https://wordpress.org/support/ .

As such, it's not always going to be up to date. Generally speaking, it's not necessary to create a meta ticket for it, since you can simply update it directly.

I updated https://codex.wordpress.org/Template:CurrentVersion to 5.2.1 and both are fixed.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
