“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-new tag) are posted following every Gutenberg release on a biweekly basis, showcasing new features included in each release. As a reminder, here’s an overview of different ways to keep up with Gutenberg and the Site Editor project (formerly called Full Site Editing).
The latest release of the pluginPluginA plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress.

But, there are some welcome additions, such as turning paragraphs into columns, an improved Cover 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 new template descriptions in the site editor.
The Cover block now supports the text color design tool. The enhancementenhancementEnhancements are simple improvements to WordPress, such as the addition of a hook, a new feature, or an improvement to an existing feature. makes it easier for users and theme authors to customize the color for all inner blocks with a single setting. Along with this benefit, the change made it easier to handle transforms from the Media & Text block.
The Cover block also now works the same as the Group block with its layout handling. Currently, the block only supports the flow layout and is set to a constrained width by default. It does not yet support flex layout variations.
The update brings consistency to layout handling, building atop a standardized system that will make for fewer edge cases and necessary customizations for theme authors.
Theme authors should test their themes against this update. In the past, some have had to work around the layout limitations of the Cover block, and the block’s support of the standard layout system may override custom implementations.
Updated template descriptions
Template descriptions have received a major overhaul in the latest update. Nearly all of them have been updated to better explain what each template does. This should make it easier for users to understand each template’s purpose when customizing it in the Site Editor.
Other Notable Highlights
A new textColumns property has been added as a “block supports” feature and is now in the style engine. It will allow users to split text-based blocks into columns. Developers can opt into this for their custom blocks, but no coreCoreCore is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. blocks support the feature yet. There are open tickets for adding it to the Paragraph and Post Excerpt blocks in future updates.
The FontSizePicker component allows for an array of custom units to be defined. This is the first step toward allowing theme authors to eventually control the available units if their themes support custom font sizes. However, the editor’s Typography panel does not yet support this feature.
