What’s New in Gutenberg? (21st June)

Coming back from a great WCEU, it was cool to see a lot of examples of what people are already building with Gutenberg and the overall sense of shared enthusiasm.

This release includes a new system for walking a new user through the interface via tips. There’s also a new iteration of the block sibling inserter that continues the effort to consolidate all the multiple interactions that are possible while reducing UI weight.

Previewing and auto-saves has also gotten a lot of work, improving the auto-save mechanism and allowing to preview changes to already published posts. There’s also a lot of bug fixes, details, improvements, and tightening of components and APIs. For example, creating a shared block from an HTML block now defaults to be in preview mode when a user inserts it.
