    Mobile Team Update – September 21st

    WordPress iOSiOS The operating system used on iPhones and iPads. and Android version 18.3 is available for testing. Sign up here to join the betaBeta A pre-release of software that is given out to a large group of users to trial under real conditions. Beta versions have gone through alpha testing in-house and are generally fairly close in look, feel and function to the final product; however, design changes often occur as part of the process. program on iOS or follow this link on your Android device, tap on “Become a beta tester”.

    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: Inline embed previews for WordPress, Instagram, and Vimeo. Fixed a regression in the Image block where the rounded corners setting was not applying inside the editor.
    • Other projects: We fixed an issue on iOS that was preventing media library images and videos to be shared.
    • Infrastructure: We continued to work on CI migrationMigration Moving the code, database and media files for a website site from one server to another. Most typically done when changing hosting companies., iOS UIUI UI is an acronym for User Interface - the layout of the page the user interacts with. Think ‘how are they doing that’ and less about what they are doing. Tests shared infrastructure and Gradle upgrades.
