WP Builds Newsletter #68 – WordPress 5.2.2, WordCamp EU and Chrome problem

This weeks WordPress news – Covering The Week Commencing 17th June 2019:

There is no audio version of the WP Builds Weekly WordPress Newsletter this week. I’m sorry about that. I was at WordCamp Europe last week and I was simply not able to find enough time to make this happen. However, please join me tomorrow when myself, David Waumsley, Paul Lacey and Tom Carless will discuss this Newsletter LIVE! This is at 2pm (UK time) in the WP Builds Facebook group.
