What to Test

  1. Using 12.8-rc-1 or later, go to Me > App Settings > Use Block Editor to enable Gutenberg Mobile for testing on new posts. Posts created using Gutenberg on the web should open in Gutenberg on the app regardless of what is selected in App Settings.
  2. Widgets for All-time, Today, Weekly Stats are now available for your device home screen. (10122)
  3. Block editor: Open the editor (a new post or existing post), select the Post Title field, delete any existing title content, and paste some text inside the empty Post Title. Check that pasting works as expected. Press Enter and check that it creates a new block and that gets focus as expected. (16116)
  4. Under My Sites > Stats in the Posts and Pages, Authors, Tags and Categories sections, a percentage bar has been added to graphically show the impact of each item. (10073)
  5. On a site using Jetpack, go to My Sites > Blog Posts and tap the search button. Try different searches and confirm that the search results work as expected. (10023)
