Highlights for the last two weeks:

  • Block Editor: We are now reusing even more high level Gutenberg components. We worked on various fixes improving lists, quotes, and text editing performance.
  • Full Site Editing: A new team focused on FSE kicked off work and is working on setting up some priorities for upcoming blocks, and collecting data to pave the way for the MVP project.
  • Offline Support: We posted our Offline Principles in the mobile blog and we continue to improve the offline posting experience.
  • iOS: You can now customize the app icon, to do so head to Me->App Settings ->App Icon and chose your favorite.
  • Infrastructure: We submitted a React Native fix, and updated the screenshot setup. WordPress and Gutenberg UI tests are now running on CI with improved speed and stability.
