Highlights for the last two weeks:

  • 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: Added support for the file block, fixed an issue with removing the heading block when it was empty, improved gallery block uploads when the editor is closed, and added the duplicate post functionality.
  • Full Site Editing: We refined the homepage picker and we fixed previewing the homepage from the editor.
  • Other Projects: Several bug fixes and small improvements across the aps.
  • Infrastructure:  We enabled an iOS localization linter.
