Gutenberg 6.2 was released today! 🎉 🙌

@kjellr‘s PR to add additional borders to nested blocks is now merged and slated for the 6.3 release.

The design approach is changing for the Navigation Block.

Progress is being made on snap-to-grid functionality. Testers are appreciated for this early PR.

There are more contextual help iterations happening, including an intro modal, and a slide-out “Help” panel in the block library.

All of those issues could definitely use some feedback, so feel free to get involved!

Other updates

@assassinateur is asking for feedback and design help on work happening for the Icons Block.

Open floor

@joyously asked how would it look like if the Themes page in wp-admin could display data from a readme.txt file. You can read more and leave feedback here.
