Update #81 – New Blocks, Updated plugins for “New WordPress publishing experience” and more

The final wording on the Call-out inviting WordPress WP-Admin users to try Gutenberg is “A new, modern WordPress publishing experience is coming soon”. If all goes well, the prompt will be released on July 31, 2018, with it’s offering of installing Gutenberg of the Classic Editor. In the meantime, the Gutenberg team released their next version, fixing a few APIs and adding more blocks and additional attribute to video and audio blocks.Β  Various block bearing plugins received updates as well and we discovered newly created blocks.
