“What’s new in 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. It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc. https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/…” posts (labeled with the #gutenberg-newtagtagA directory in Subversion.

As a reminder, here’s an overview of different ways to keep up with Gutenberg and the Full Site Editing project.
Gutenberg 14.5 has been released and is available for download!
It consolidates the list view and document information, expands margin and padding support while improving spacing visualizers, and sets the groundwork for future releases with numerous code quality improvements and bugbugA bug is an error or unexpected result.

Access the list view and document information all from one panel
Prior to Gutenberg 14.5, there were separate icons in the Editor toolbar for “List View” and “Details.” The Details popover presented a document outline and information like the character and word count. The List View panel displayed a hierarchical view of all blocks in the document.
The Details popover and List View panel have now been combined into a single panel offering a more streamlined way to manage the current document. This new “Document Overview” panel is accessible by clicking on the original List View icon in the toolbar.
Confidently edit 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. spacing using improved visualizers
Configuring block spacing (margin, padding) can be tricky, especially when determining how the spacing of one block will impact those blocks around it. Spacing visualizers significantly improve this experience by allowing you to “visualize” each change you make.
Gutenberg 14.5 enhances this functionality by displaying visualizers as soon as you hover over a spacing control rather than just when edited. This is a small change, but an important one since most CoreCoreCore is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. blocks now support spacing controls. The release itself adds spacing to numerous comment-related blocks.
