What’s New in Gutenberg? (23th January)

Gutenberg 4.9 is a big milestone in terms for performance improvements for Gutenberg. It introduces a new asynchronous mode for blocks rendering improving the responsiveness of the editor.

The Documentation efforts are still on-going with three new tutorials leveraging the Format API, the Sidebar Plugins API and Post Meta Blocks as well as a number of improved README files for our UI components.

In terms of developer experience, this release includes a lot of improvements to our e2e tests including support for aXe Accessibility testing.
