This update should coincide with the last betaBetaA pre-release of software that is given out to a large group of users to trial under real conditions. Beta versions have gone through alpha testing in-house and are generally fairly close in look, feel and function to the final product; however, design changes often occur as part of the process. release (5). As usual, plenty of fixes were addressed across the different areas.

Improves margins, column child blockBlockBlock 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., and mobile display of columns.
Improve animations: new, consistent naming convention, adds editor prefix, and moves keyframe animations (which don’t work well with mixins) into the edit post style.

Click and drag was incorrectly triggering a selection event in the block list under the popover, resulting in the popover dismissing. This was causing blocks to be selected when trying to set links to open in a new tab, for example. Fixed by preventing the mouse down event from propagating.
Adds some padding to the block inserter so that it never overlaps text in nested contexts or mobile views.
Better handle images larger than the editor by allowing a 2.5x buffer. Allows images inserted in TwentyNineteen and other themes that have a wider than 580px editor width, to look as expected, but prevents infinite resizing of images.
It was not possible to scroll a long menu on first load of 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.
