A week after the “Try Gutenberg” prompt appears in WordPress site’s admin dashboard, Gutenberg plugin reached the threshold of 100,000+ Active Installs. The plugin is getting mixed reviews between “Not in Core” and “Blogging just received a massive upgrade”. Gutenberg developers are weeding through the actionable feedback from this first encounter with a huge user base. In the meantime, plugins developers are working hard on getting ready for the WordPress 5.0 release, and Block developers are building new Blocks for Gutenberg content creators.
