    Is it OK to upgrade to Wordpress 5 with the new i.scout 4 wordpress theme?

    Being cautious, I've held off updating any of my Wordpress sites to version 5 until at least 1 point release has been issued (burned too many times in the past by vendors who expect their customers to beta test their software).

    Now that 5.0.2 is out, I'm prepared to update, but I thought I'd check to see if anybody has experienced any issues with the new i.scout theme or the required plugins (particularly King Composer)

    Not had any issues with the new theme and Wordpress 5. I've installed the classic editor rather than switch to Gutenberg on all of my wordpress sites.

    I forgot to switch off auto updating so my site updated itself and doesn't seem to have any issues. I had more problems with PHP 7x TBH and old plugins
