What is Divi 5?

Divi 5 is the next evolution of Divi's visual builder, rebuilt from the ground up to be incredibly fast and infinitely capable, including a refreshed UI built for speed and efficiency. Divi 5 doesn't add new features (don't worry, those will come next) but instead focuses on the fundamentals, acting as a springboard to propel Divi into the future.

We Rebuilt Divi From The Ground Up

We learned a lot while developing Divi over the past decade. We've been sprinting forward for so long, but it was finally time to take a big step back and plan for the future. We completely rebuilt Divi's page builder from the ground up, resulting in a fast, lean, scalable builder made for the future of WordPress.

Rebuiling Divi From The Ground Up

A Lightning Fast, Reinvented Website Builder

Divi 5 is very fast. Furthermore, it can handle large, complex designs with ease. You'll notice the lightning-fast speed right away! Divi 5 significantly improves front-end page speeds as well. Speed and scalability are two of Divi 5's core principles.

Divi 5’s Nimble API Unlocks Endless Potential

We completely changed our development strategy with Divi 5, building an API-first product that empowers our team to create new features that weren't possible in Divi 4 and grants those same powers to the entire Divi community. These aren't changes you can see visually, but behind the scenes, we are lighting the fire of innovation.

Divi 5's Nimble API

Improved Front End Page Speeds

In our tests, Divi 5 is twice as fast as Divi 4 regarding front-end server rendering. The new architecture is much more efficient and built to never get bogged down no matter how many new features we add in the future.

Divi 5 Says Goodbye to Shortcodes

Divi 5 is built to be future-proof. That means removing shortcodes and migrating to a modern storage format that shares much in common with WordPress's block editor. This allows for improved interplay between both editors, ensuring you won't miss out on the latest WordPress features.

Divi 5 Goodbye Shortcodes

Release Roadmap

Divi 5 is a vast project, and we know the community is chomping at the bit to get their hands on it. That's why we are releasing it in 5 phases. Early phases will be missing certain features, which will be filled incrementally. You can jump in and use Divi 5 at any point during the public alpha and beta if the missing features aren't something you miss.

Phase 5

Official Release

We will release an official Divi 5 once all feedback from the public beta has been addressed. This will be available as a normal Divi Theme update in your WordPress dashboard.

Phase 4

Public Beta

The Public Beta will begin once all Divi features have been added to Divi 5 and all feedback from the Alpha has been addressed. This will be the finished version of Divi 5, pending any bug fixes found during the Beta.

Phase 3: Coming Soon

Public Alpha

The Public Alpha will be a Divi 5 "lite" that is fully functioning but lacking certain features and modules. It will be suitable for building new sites and testing, but it will only be suitable for use on some existing Divi sites due to its lack of features.

Phase 2: Complete

Developer Beta

The Dev Beta introduced a finished version of the Divi 5 API allowing developers to start updating their extensions early, way before the official Divi 5 release.

Phase 1: Complete

Developer Alpha

The Developer Alpha release gave developers a glimpse into the future of Divi 5 so that they could start planning how to adapt their existing Divi extensions.
