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. Documentation

@chrisvanpatten said that a Gutenberg Docs bug scrub will happen within the next 2 weeks.

The plans to peg the current released 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. Editor docs to the current WordPress release is still an item that they want to fix but have limited resources. We would appreciate anyone wanting to help with this transition to raise their hand!
