Gutenberg Update Skips A Week – Pushes Many Fixes

The planned release schedule for the Gutenberg Editor plugin is once a week on a Friday. Last week release was missed and it jamp from 0.4.0 to 0.6.0 today.

There are many improvements and tweaks to the editor. Most notably for me was addition of validation of blocks and detection of modification outside of Gutenberg. I spotted this immediately as Cover Image block markup has changed and block validation detected every block I had previously added as being modified.

Modified blocks get locked in the visual editor to prevent breaking of any customizations added.

Also since cover image markup was changes every one I had previously added had broken styles. That is what happens using early-access and heavily in development software lol

New Block – Cover Text

The Cover Text block was added as a variant of the cover image block.

This is mainly a stylized text block with background and text color options.

Multiple lines and text styles can be used as well as adding links. There are 3 style selectors.

Above are all 3 of the different included formats and each has different colored text. At this exact moment the text color does not change. This is because of a small bug in the output of these blocks. I made an issue and submitted a PR with a fix. Hopefully it's fixed in next version.
