Today, the WordPress.org development team released WordPress 6.2, it has some nice upgrades related to using Gutenberg, the WordPress core Editor, and morphing into a site builder, and 6.2 gets it closer. While some nice progress has been made, Gutenberg still isn't 100% ready to replace these site builders like Elementor, Beaver Builder, and others.

6.2 UPGRADE SCHEDULE - If your site is on the KartHost Managed WordPress and EZWP Complete package, we will wait 7 to 14 days to upgrade your site. Why? While most premium Plugin creators stay on top of ensuring their plugins are compatible with the latest version of WordPress (and PHP) right away, many plugin creators lag behind (usually less popular ones). So upgrading could cause your site to break, and you will not want that.

If you have WordPress Hosting at KartHost on our WordPress Container-Based platform. You will need to upgrade your site. But we do recommend you wait for the 7 to 14 days.

Plus, if there is an undiscovered issue with WordPress Core, this time frame is usually when it will be found when millions and millions of WordPress installs upgrade. Because it's YOUR site, we are cautious. 

Put Your Site in Front of the Line to Upgrade - If you want us to upgrade your WordPress install  (Managed WordPress and EZWP Complete clients), we will. Open a KartHost Support Ticket in your Customer Center account, and we will do that for you.
