5.0.2: Editor Performance and Bug Fixes

With 5.0 released to the world, attention is now placed on preparing the follow up minor releases. The first one, scheduled for December 19th, focuses on performance improvements — particularly around typing with many blocks present on the page — and bug fixes.

The cumulated performance gains are around 330% faster for a post with 200 blocks. This might be even bigger for certain setups and plugin configurations — seeing the same test post be 540% faster with Yoast, for example.

The Gutenberg update can already be tested in the 4.7 plugin release and will be part of the upcoming 5.0.2 beta.
