What’s new in Gutenberg? (9th August)

Another update has sailed! This one comes after WordPress 4.9.8 releaseRelease A release is the distribution of the final version of an application. A software release may be either public or private and generally constitutes the initial or new generation of a new or upgraded application. A release is preceded by the distribution of alpha and then beta versions of the software. with the “try the new editor” notice, which has increased the number of installs from 15k to more than 120k in a few days. This is an important milestone as we broaden the testing horizons. We’d like to take a moment to thank everyone that has tested and given feedback through the various channels.

Likewise, huge thanks to everyone that has helped answer questions, addressed forum feedback, triaged new issues, fixed bugs, and generally jumped in to contribute.

Back to the release, this one includes several fixes, polish, and cleaner interactions around the writing flow. On the developer side, there’s been work around refining and adding to the pool of APIs and documentation.

Showing updates to some UIUI User interface components.
