Call for Testing: Gutenberg 3.7 Pre-release

Gutenberg is the project name of the new editing experience in WordPress. The goal of Gutenberg is to simplify the creation of rich pages and posts in WordPress by replacing old custom HTML, CSS and shortcodes with native Blocks. Creating Gutenberg has been a huge team effort – and right now, the team needs your help with testing!

Today, we have a small window for regression testing Gutenberg 3.7 because the release is planned for tomorrow.

If you would like to help with pre-release testing, please install locally so you are using master or download 3.7 as a zip file and install it to your Plugins folder (make sure to delete older versions of the plugin first!), and try testing some of these updates from 3.7:

  1. Write/edit/publish a few posts using the Unified Toolbar (previously called “Fixed Toolbar”).
  2. Change alignment for various images.
  3. Make sure icons and dropdown arrow look correct on hover for block conversion.
  4. Create an Audio block by drag-and-dropping an audio file.
  5. Search for blocks and check that it works as expected (i.e. start with `/` via the inserter).
  6. Convert a multiline-paragraph into a list.
  7. Add links to text.
  8. Add a link by selecting a URL and clicking the link icon.
  9. Upload an image with a space in the filename and check that the title does not have a hyphen added.
  10. Add a post image in a video block.
  11. Add videos and check that all works as expected.
  12. There were several other improvements and bug fixes in the 3.7 release and this list tries to cover the more major updates so we can have a good starting point for testing. Alternately, just run a general test writing or editing posts and pages as you would normally!

If you find a new bug, file it in gutenberg on GitHub.

Please feel free to discuss testing practices or issues here in the comments or in #core-test on WordPress Slack any time.
