Gutenberg 3.5.0 is available for download and polishes existing features. This release adds an edit button to embed blocks that allows users to edit the source URL.
The contrast has been increased for input fields and check boxes have visually more distinct states as the following video shows.
One notable change is the addition of a warning that displays if Cloudflare blocks REST API requests. This issue was reported last September and it turns out that the PUT request is sometimes blocked by Cloudflare.
Gary Pendergast reached out to Cloudflare and the company deployed a fix earlier this week.

Wasn’t sure if I should post this here or in the previous post “Gutenberg Plugin Garners Mixed Reactions from New Wave of Testers” but thought I would post it here being as my comment is relates to v3.5.0
I’ve been playing with Gutenberg again (this time with version 3.5.0) and even though I am not a fan, I realized one thing in particular that annoys me is the layout. Everything is spread out and hidden and too many clicks are required.
I decided to explore possible alternatives to make elements stay in view but easier access. Just a couple layout/style options…
I also included blocks from the Atomic Blocks theme (which I tried with this) on the top bar to go with the core blocks.
