Is already June 2019, WordCamp Europe has come to an end, and I realized, I have been curating the Gutenberg News and Updates around the WordPress ecosystem now already for two years. WOW. “All good things take time” is a quote from my father who just turned 92 this week.
It’s not because nothing happened in Gutenberg Land-ia. As a subscriber of our e News, you received your weekly Gutenberg fix.
And now without further ado here is the Table of Contents for this week’s post:
- Podcast: Gutenberg Changelog and Live Q & As
- WordCamp and Conferences
- Updates WordPress Core & Design
- Themes and Layouts for the Block Editor
- Block editor for content creators
- Building blocks and extending Gutenberg
- Photos from Around the World
Podcast: Gutenberg Changelog and Live Q & As
The new podcast “Gutenberg Changelog” is now available on the podcast directories of Google Music, Apple iTunes, Stitcher and Spotify and, of course, via RSS for any other players and readers
Mark Uriane, designer at Automattic and core contributor, and I will be co-hosting a weekly show, talking through the Gutenberg news of the week. We plan to record on Friday afternoons and publish over the weekend. The intro-episode came out this week, just in time (JIT) for WordCamp Europe.
Due to travel and vacation we won’t be able to start with our weekly schedule until July 12th, 2019.
If you have stories, ideas and suggestions, or questions send them via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I also started planning more Gutenberg Times Live Q & As via Zoom and YouTube. The next show will be about the AMP plugin bringing AMP Stories to Gutenberg and WordPress. Save the date: July 26th, at 2 pm EDT / 18:00 UTC for our show talking to AMP plugin team members Alberto Medina, Pascal Birchler and Cathi Bosco. Registration is already open.
This show will be sponsored by Pantheon. Their team has also been looking into making AMP part of their hosting and development stack and help WordPress agencies succeed in the fight of speed, security and providing and excellent user experience.
If you subscribe to the eNews on Saturdays you will among the first people to learn about more scheduled shows. You can watch previous shows on YouTube via this Live Q & A archive page.

Zac Gordon’s talk at WordCamp Miami
On May 25, 2019, we shut down our Patreon page and sent a note to our faithful patrons in gratitude for the their ongoing support. On top of the publishing schedule for our eNews, blog posts and Live Q & A shows, I was not able to dedicate additional time to keeping the Patreon page up to date . Earlier this month the Gutenberg Times was accepted in Jetpack’s beta test for the recurring payments button. You can support us now right here.

The new Group block and the updated Columns block in Gutenberg 6.0 are incredible tools in the Block Editor! Any idea when Gutenberg 6.0 will be included in WordPress?
The next WordPress version is 5.3. “The schedule and potential features and focuses for 5.3 has yet to be determined.” is a quote from this week’s DevChat meeting summary. . If you install the plugin on your site you are able to use the good things already. We use Gutenberg 6.0 on this site, too and didn’t run into any issues.
