We enabled TLSv1.3 support on the WordPress.com API today and it’s already 50% of total traffic.
Earlier this year, my colleague David Newman gave a great talk about the systems that power WordPress.com and our container-based VIP platform at ScaleConf in Cape Town, South Africa.

Batcache version 1.2 was released today. It fixes a fun bug that could cause incorrect cached content to be returned in some cases. The default Batcache key has been updated to include
