WordPress is on a planned three phase modernization of the use of jQuery. jQuery is a set of scripts that gives websites functionality like animation, provides interactive elements to web pages, makes creating plugins and themes easier because it handles features common to websites and manipulate CSS with it.

WordPress 5.5 was the first step toward modernizing WordPress by forcing the entire WordPress ecosystem to update their code and get on board with the latest and safest version of jQuery.
