Gutenberg Phase 2 Friday Design Update #34

Gutenberg 6.5 was released this last Wednesday. It included some great features and enhancements.

One of the highlights of this last release is found within the plugin’s experiment settings: the Block Directory!

Other outstanding additions included:

Gutenberg + WordPress 5.3

The Gutenberg code is currently frozen in preparation for merging into Core. Well, except for the code that continually being improved for the plugin itself. Here’s a reminder of the upcoming WordPress 5.3 dates.

  • September 16 – Gutenberg code freeze
  • September 23 – WP 5.3 Beta 1
  • October 7 – Soft string freeze for WP 5.3

A few remaining items that we’re hoping to finalize before 5.3 are these two pressing PRs.
