This belated release brings support for nested blocks into GutenbergGutenbergThe Gutenberg project is the new Editor Interface for WordPress. The editor improves the process and experience of creating new content, making writing rich content much simpler. It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc. https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/. The list of changes is rather big, so it's broken up into sections. It also has a new ColumnsblockBlockBlock is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor. The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience. that leverages nested blocks to operate — it is labeled experimental, though, as it needs further work and has some browser hiccups.
Most notably to the user experience, we are introducing block shortcuts on empty paragraph blocks to streamline the process of inserting content that is not text, while also optimizing for the writing experience. The global inserter, featured at the top of the editor, is meant to become more of a primary way to add content when the user is not writing. Getting this balance right between block creation and the writing flow is crucial and we'll continue testing with users to refine it.
We are also making changes to how text is synced to the application state, which improves the reliability of the "unsaved" state, the undo mechanism, the ability to dismiss the publish sidebarSidebarA sidebar in WordPress is referred to a widget-ready area used by WordPress themes to display information that is not a part of the main content. It is not always a vertical column on the side. It can be a horizontal rectangle below or above the content area, footer, header, or any where in the theme. automatically as soon as you make another edit, and so on.
Block Nesting is live! It comes with an experimental Columns block. (Note: converting a nested block into a reusable block is disabled on this first version.) Furthermore, this is not a specific implementation for columns alone — any block author can take advantage of defining nested areas.
Refined block insertion experience:
Introduce block shortcuts on every empty paragraph block. This also temporarily disables the sibling inserter as we work on refining this interaction.
Support unwrapped paragraph text via native block deprecation mechanism. (Ensures paragraphs without p tags are correctly interpreted.) Also readdresses code that was applying autop selectively on the server for posts made with gutenberg as it is handled at the block level when needed.
Add raw handling (pasting mechanism) for iframes (e.g. Google Maps).

Generally useful for extensibility hooksHooksIn WordPress theme and development, hooks are functions that can be applied to an action or a Filter in WordPress. Actions are functions performed when a certain event occurs in WordPress. Filters allow you to modify certain functions. Arguments used to hook both filters and actions look the same..
Add a subscribe function to the editor data module. Also, separate reducers into multiple stores to avoid unallowed access to the actions.
Fix regressionregressionA software bug that breaks or degrades something that previously worked. Regressions are often treated as critical bugs or blockers. Recent regressions may be given higher priorities. A "3.6 regression" would be a bug in 3.6 that worked as intended in 3.5. when converting gallery from shortcode.
