    As always, excellent information to stay in the loop.
    It’s all pretty exciting. I personally don’t have a clear view on this. I just wonder where it’s going to take us a few years from now. Will page builders like the excellent Beaver Builder turn out obsolete?
    I wonder if the web design business will get a push back from all these developments and to what exactly this kind of business is going to shift itself to.

    Has anyone tried using Gutenberg v1 on a Surface or other full Windows OS touchscreen tablet or desktop?

    The choice to still use hovers how they’re implemented in Gutenberg speak to it’s lack of design thought about accessibility and device form factor. I get the cool factor of them but they’re like the HTML blink tag to me these days. I don’t miss them.

      Great question. I’ve moved from the Mac (mouse only) to Surface (mouse + touch) and get frustrated at the wordpress oddness when using touch.

    Thanks for keeping us all updated on Guten. It’s nice to see the development progress and get better and better!

    This makes me feel like tearing my hair out. Gutenberg should focus on content and content blocks.

    Fonts, colours and alignments are not content they are presentation. Leave that crap to the page builders

    They can go this naming route. I do not mind. The can go though version version 7.0.0 if they have to. They have to get this right before it moves into the core.

    It bothers me that this early-stage plugin is version 1.0. They’re obviously not adhering to semver.

    To this day, with version 1.0 list, I still find many shortcomings in the tool and, above all, lack of usability.
    It is extremely difficult to write a simple post. What with the current editor 5 minutes late, with Gutenberg you can take up to 15 and, in the end, you do not get the same results.
    I have tested the supposed improvements with this version and I can assure you that I have been unable to move a block with a drag-and-drop image.
    When trying to do this, several blocks are selected at once … but the selection, for the only thing that is worth to erase the blocks, nothing more.
    I also still see no progress, for example, in the links using URK. When you click on the icon, you have to type it in hhtp: //. Otherwise Gutenberg tells you that the link is not correct (you have to remember that in the editor, to put a link, you do not need neither hhtp nor www).
    Let’s see how long it will take for Automattic to release a plugin to facilitate the writing of articles … because I am convinced that the hidden purpose of Gutenberg is to monetize it in some way, and hence its sudden interest and hurried to impose it on WordPress before Of year end.

    I think copying or cutting multiple blocks of text seemed too cumbersome compared to a traditional word processor experience but that’s a minor gripe. This project is coming together nicely.
