    I know that theme devs that have/add themes to .org are starting to update their own there. I know with Blogging Theme Styles, the site already has the last few (new) themes fully supportive with block styling. So it seems others are getting onboard. The Hemmingway theme recently updated to support Gutenberg as well.

    Not sure how many existing themes in .org will update, but it appears Automattic will be doing this for all their themes.

    But one thing I’ve noticed is that the Gutenberg team seems to like making changes to styles, which means we now have to back in and update the style classes. An example is the Cover Image block. Used to be “wp-block-cover-image” now its “wp-block-cover”, so this broke styles.

    A challenge because Gutenberg is not officially released, or finished.

      This is one reason I’d like to see a month or two between RC and 5.0.

      Because of the long Thanksgiving weekend, there are only five work days remaining before the target release date on the 27th. We don’t have an RC yet so it’s looking to me like 5.0 will be pushed back until January 22. I hope that’s what happens since an RC in December with final release in January would be very helpful to theme and plugin makers in smoothing out the details and updating help resources.

    I´m in WP.com and I made an attempt with the new editor… This new editor is very complicated for those who just want to have a good writing experience. The old editor, and I mean the oldest one, found in wp-admin, is more complete and easy to use.

    I think the Storefront Beta Tester plugin will not work for the theme’s Gutenberg functionality because it’s being developed in a separate branch in the Git repo.

    I would like this theme update to get higher priority; after all, they have 200,000 installs. I have a few sites using Storefront with Gutenberg, and…. it’s not ideal….
