What’s new in Gutenberg 16.1? (29 June)

What’s new in Gutenberg 16.1

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 is now available to download.

16.1 is loaded with exciting features, bugbug A bug is an error or unexpected result. Performance improvements, code optimization, and are considered enhancements, not defects. After feature freeze, only bugs are dealt with, with regressions (adverse changes from the previous version) being the highest priority. fixes, accessibilityAccessibility Accessibility (commonly shortened to a11y) refers to the design of products, devices, services, or environments for people with disabilities. The concept of accessible design ensures both “direct access” (i.e. unassisted) and “indirect access” meaning compatibility with a person’s assistive technology (for example, computer screen readers).

Your templates and patterns, your library

You can now create and sync design patterns across your entire site, and access them in the Pattern Library. (PR #51078)

“Reusable blocks” have been renamed to “Patterns”, and come with the option to synchronize. 

Changes you make to a synchronized pattern will update all instances of that pattern no matter where it appears on your site.  

Unsynchronized patterns, on the other hand, can be edited independently after being inserted. 

All your existing Reusable blocks, custom template parts, and patterns are displayed and are searchable in the Pattern Library. They’re also available in the blockBlock Block 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. inserter.

Create your site without distraction

Gutenberg 16.1 introducees a Distraction Free mode to the site editor; the same feature available for writing posts users love since Gutenberg 14.4 can now help you build your site, too. (PR #51173)

Once activated, this new mode removes all controls and menus, offering an environment for focused work while allowing you to edit a 1:1 preview of your site.

The Distraction Free setting is accessible via a keyboard shortcut Shift+Cmd+\ in Mac (Shift+Ctrl+\ in Windows) or in the top right options menu. “Calm, blue ocean” productivity is just a click away.

Text blocks: now with footnotes

Gone are the days of creating and constantly re-sorting dozens of anchor links. After a great deal of exploration and testing, automated footnote functionality comes to the Block Editor. (PR #51201)

Footnotes are available in text blocks including paragraph, heading and lists, and can be added from the block context menu.

The Footnotes block will remove and reorder your footnotes as you edit your text, which means less time managing links and lists and more time for writing.

Achieve more with the Site editor sidebarSidebar A sidebar in WordPress is referred to a widget-ready area used by WordPress themes to display information that is not a part of the main content. It is not always a vertical column on the side. It can be a horizontal rectangle below or above the content area, footer, header, or any where in the theme.

When viewing Home page templates, you’ll now see more template settings and configuration details in the sidebar. (PR #51223) Quickly access the home template’s headerHeader The header of your site is typically the first thing people will experience. The masthead or header art located across the top of your page is part of the look and feel of your website. It can influence a visitor’s opinion about your content and you/ your organization’s brand. It may also look different on different screen sizes., footer and other template areas and control blogblog (versus network, site) options such as posts per page and allowing comments.

Site editor sidebar showing home template settings

When browsing a template part that contains one or more navigation menus, for example the Header template part, you will see those menus displayed in the sidebar. From here you can conveniently view and edit all the menu items featured in that template part. (PR #51492)

Furthermore, in 16.1, live theme previewing in the Site editor (introduced in 15.8) has been moved from beyond the experimental curtain, and is available for installed blocks themes under Appearance > Themes. (PR #50983)

Worthy mentions

Take control over the dimensions of Image blocks with new aspect-ratio tools. (PR #51545)

The Link Control UIUI User interface has also seen a major revamp in this release, streamlining the editing process further. (PR #50890)

#51831 makes it easier to shuffle your Button blocks to and fro and up and down by providing direction-based arrows in the context toolbar.
