Editor chat summary: June 21st, 2023

This post summarizes the weekly editor chat meeting (agenda for June 21st meeting) held on Wednesday, June 21st 2023, 03:00 PM GMT+1 in Slack. Moderated by @fabiankaegy.

GutenbergGutenberg The 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/ 16.1 RC1 will be released later today. 16.0 was released last week alongside the regular Whats new in Gutenberg post.

WordPress 6.3 BetaBeta A pre-release of software that is given out to a large group of users to trial under real conditions. Beta versions have gone through alpha testing in-house and are generally fairly close in look, feel and function to the final product; however, design changes often occur as part of the process. 1 will be released in less than a week on Tuesday, June 27th. A good overview of the various tasks still in progress can be found in the WordPress 6.3 Editor Tasks Project on GitHub.

Even though the release of the beta is happening one day before the public release of Gutenberg 16.1 the plan is still to include all the features up until 16.1 in WordPress 6.3.
