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. Errors / Warnings

@jameskoster is exploring how we might surface block errors and warnings off-canvas in Gutenberg issue #41747.

Padding control

@jameskoster is also ideating on an update to the padding control that supports presets and fluid values.

A new Gutenberg landing page designed by @beafialho launched last week, which allows users to interact with the editor on the front end of the site. ✨
