Since the new version includes several major changes, it is sure that thousands of themes and plugins are not compatible with the new editor and might bring issues to your website. So, we recommend that you do not run the update directly on your production site. Instead, consider setting up a test site to play around with the newest version first. And if everything seems fine for you then you can go to your main site.
