    As a theme developer that creates custom buttons to the TinyMCE editor to generate and insert shortcodes, I’m petrified that this update will break many things. Does anyone know that existing themes and plugins won’t break with this update?

      It’s hard to say, Nick – but there will be a nice beta period (or you can grab nightly builds at any time). I’d be curious to know how it goes…..

        Just tested 4.8-alpha-40576 and all my custom buttons works but this version uses 4.5.6

        In my own cms I use 4.6.0 and all the custom buttons works

        Thanks for the suggestion Jason, the current nightly builds have none of the new features listed above. Hopefully by Beta 1 the features will be in place so we can tell exactly what’s going on. As a result, for now, as ceasar below suggests, all the custom buttons are working, and hopefully it will stay like that.

      I’d think page builders would have the toughest time with an inline editor. Most of those may need to disable that functionality, and a lot of them already have inline front end editing built into them.

        Even though you are never wrong Trevor, I just hope for once you will be this time around. By the end of this week we will get a glimpse more accurately if we need to start panicking again, when we get beta 1 in our hands.

    Does WordPress 4.8 plan on being completely compatible with strict Content-Security-Policy headers?
    Currently I have to enable unsafe-inline and unsafe-eval in the script-src part of my CSP or else the Customize feature will not work.

    Still no plans for folders in the media lib :-(

    Basically all our customers ask for that.

    The testing time is very short in my opinion, and I hope everything is fine with the final release.

    I think that this will be great for user experience. I teach end users, and one of the things that they complain about is the editing of posts and pages. The blocks functionality looks amazing and I think will help overall WordPress adoption. I think it’s a step in the right direction.
