✨ Ghost 5.0
Ghost's mission from the start has been to create a focused platform for professional publishers. Today, that mission is as strong as it's ever been. In fact, publishers and creators using Ghost are growing faster than ever before.
From world-famous publishers like David Sirota, to YouTubers with millions of subscribers like Ali Abdaal, to forward-thinking startups like Buffer who specialize in incredible brand journalism.
To support this growing demand we announced the latest major version, Ghost 5.0, along with a reel of powerful new features to help publishers and creators build healthy, sustainable businesses around their audience.

📮 Multiple newsletters
One of the new features that landed in Ghost 5.0 that we're really excited about is multiple newsletters — giving you the ability to create multiple different newsletters for a single site.
Publishers such as The Lever and The Browser are already using this feature to level-up their newsletter strategies, by giving readers the option to subscribe to different types of content, including daily newsletters, weekly roundups, deep-dives, podcast episodes, events, announcements, and much more.
What's more, you can customize the design and branding for each newsletter, individually, to make each newsletter stand out.
Giving your audience the choice of what emails they want to read helps keep them engaged while giving you the opportunity to deliver different types of content without overwhelming their inboxes.
We also launched a brand new home for Ghost tutorials, to help you create beautiful custom publications.
This is the go-to place when you're looking to customize your site and take advantage of the more advanced tools Ghost has to offer. These tutorials cover everything from the basics required to make small theme customizations (no coding experience required), to advanced level tutorials for experienced developers.
We're just getting started with this new resource and have lots of new content planned. If you're interested in joining the Ghost developer community and getting the latest features, tools and tutorials in your inbox, subscribe here.
