When is the release to automatic updates?
Our product releases are done in phases. You can download the latest version from your dashboard page. The downloads can be used for manually updating or setting up a new install. Automatic updates will be available some time after the initial release. This process helps us provide better support and catch potential lingering issues that were not uncovered in beta testing. You can find instructions to manually update in this knowledge base article.
What's the deal with Gutenburg?
X, Pro, and Cornerstone are fully compatible with the WordPress 5.0 update. For more info on Gutenburg, see this article: https://theme.co/apex/forum/t/gutenberg-faq/40776
Why do my Visual Composer rows and columns look broken after this update?
Go to WPBakery Page Builder Settings > General and make sure "Legacy X Integration" is enabled. A common request we get is to not overwrite parts of the WPBakery Page Builder. We are committed to keep supporting sites from the early days of X where Visual Composer was our page builder but we've consolidated all that integration code under one setting. It used to be enabled by default, but you will now need to opt-in to use it.
