What’s new in Gutenberg? (May the 4th)

Things are going well on the road towards completing the first phase of the editor project. Most of the work is centered around polish, getting things ready for merge, and tightening existing APIs.



This release has many refinements and improves the capabilities of the Block and Plugin APIs. It also adds a new “spacer” block for generating visual space. The color palette component has been improved to be based on classes instead of inline styles (for registered colors) and includes some important accessibility improvements (like naming the color). Thank you to everyone involved!

Screen readers can announce the color by name.
