Wordpress version on Install

If I use:

composer create-project roots/bedrock

why is version 5.2.3 installed and not the latest version?

Because at the time you ran that, the roots/bedrockrepo had WP 5.2.3 in it’s composer.lock file.

If you run it again now, you’d get 5.3 (relevant line in the lock file).

As I’m sure you know you can easily bump the version yourself by updating the composer.json file and then running composer update.

Make sense?
