“Still in re-design of the architecture phase. Close to merging the first re-architectural PR. What does it need?
Test it with plugins that are using the current functions to ensure nothing is broken, ie back compatibility is maintained with this phase.
Final code review
Once merged, it will unblock the last re-architectural task. Once both of those are merged, then performance tasks are unblocked.”
“We now have the basics of the Navigation List View working. It is possible to view, edit and remove navigation items from the inspector controls. Drag and drop also works. The main areas of concern are:
When editing an item, can we show the settings tab?
Can we animate the opening of the 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.

@flexseth posted: “Documentation review: There are quite a few discrepancies in the ESNext flavor syntax used in Code examples for the documentation (and handbook). Maybe the #docs channel would be the best place to take up discussion on that though? I’ve been wanting to make sure all of the examples are functioning and writing more examples for components.. and to also look to establish a standard for the ES6+ code out there.”
@bph noted: “An issue or more than one should go to the 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/ repo for discussion. If you want to work on fixing them, you can review the the Guide to Documentation contributions“
@flexseth asked: “Do you know where first time contributors can submit to be listed as contributors for this year? In the contributor numbers for State of the WordState of the WordThis is the annual report given by Matt Mullenweg, founder of WordPress at WordCamp US. It looks at what we’ve done, what we’re doing, and the future of WordPress. https://wordpress.tv/tag/state-of-the-word/., in one of the Hallway Hangouts a call for contributors was mentioned I think.”
@bph: noted: “AFAIK the contributor numbers in SOTW are always release related. 5.9 6.0 6.1. Each team has their own way of acknowledging contributions. 6.1 was the last release for the year. Every Gutenberg plugin release has a list of contributors, too. Example, including first contributors”
Well after having used WordPress for over 10 years, I can say the direction of the project is the best I’ve seen. Good work all! — @flexseth
