Highlights for the last two weeks:

  • Block Editor: We landed full-screen image preview on iOS too, and enabled the video block settings.
  • Full Site Editing: We made the Spacer block available to the public! The 1st iteration of the Gallery block is almost done and have made good progress on the Group and Button blocks.
  • Other Projects: Focused on crashing some bugs on Android and iOS, like this fix for fast-scrolling on the Posts List, and this fix for UIDocumentMenuViewController crash.
  • Infrastructure: Tooling improvements and wrangled the upgrade to Xcode 11.2.1.
