Update #95 WordPress 5.0 to come out Dec 6th, 2018 – Q & As on YouTube, More Blocks and Dev resources

I am writing this from the Southwest Florida Airport on my way to Nashville, TN, the Music City. About 1800 people will descend for WordCamp US, Mullenweg’s State of the Word and Contributor Day, starting Friday. Finally we have a new release date for WordPress 5.0: tomorrow (Thursday). Read Matt Mullenweg’s post and watch yesterday’s interview with Adam Presser of WPCrafter YouTube Channel.  Also on YouTube, the Gutenberg Times Live Q & A with design and tech leads, Tammie Lister, Matias Ventura and Joen Asmussen. A lot more blocks popped up for content creators using Gutenberg and more tools for plugins developers to create blocks for the new editor.

About to board my plane now.  🛫✈️Hope to see some of you at WordCamp US (Livestream tickets are free) 💕 Birgit

If it weren’t for the last minute, nothing would get done
