“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 brings many user-facing features to improve the creation experience, such as caption styles customization and theme-defined template patterns when adding a new template. Theme creators should enjoy testing the experimental grid layout and template locking support for the Columns 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.. There are many features to cover in this release, so let’s dive right in.
Gutenberg 14.9 added template types support to the Patterns APIAPIAn API or Application Programming Interface is a software intermediary that allows programs to interact with each other and share data in limited, clearly defined ways.. However, this was only an under-the-hood change, laying the groundwork for future iterations. Version 15.2 introduced a new modal when adding new templates in the Site Editor for users. It only provided two choices: to use a fallback template or start from a blank slate.
In the latest release, those two concepts have been merged to allow users to build a new template from theme-registered template patterns. Theme authors can register custom patterns meant for specific template types (e.g., single post, 404, etc.), and they will appear in the start modal.
Style captions via the Styles interface
For a while now, theme authors have been able to create custom styles for <caption> elements directly via theme.json. The latest Gutenberg update brings those design options to the Styles interface, allowing creators and users to customize captions without touching code.
Experimental grid layout support
Gutenberg 15.5 introduces a new grid layout type. This is still in an early stage and currently only supports a setting for the minimum column width, but it defines the foundation for more configuration options going forward. Theme authors should start testing this now and provide feedback on use cases they envision.

To test it, visit Gutenberg > Experiments screen in the WordPress adminadmin(and super admin) and enable the Grid variation for Group block option.
Gutenberg 15.3 introduced a Time to Read block for showing the number of estimated minutes it takes to read a post. The latest update adds spacing and typography support to the block, rounding out its design tools set.
