Hey! Hey! Hey! Our CTO is checking out updates for our tech stack. What’s new in WP nowadays?

For now, some components/blocks are missed to use it fully as well as some bugs are still there.
The editor is actively updating and you can see it on a releases’ page on a GitHub: https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/releases
