ICYMI: Wordpress released 5.0 last week, the latest version of its platform that includes a new block editor dubbed โ€œGutenberg.โ€ The new editor's features are largely centered around customizable content blocks,ย and is ultimately intended to help site owners better decide how content is displayed. ๐Ÿ™Œ

โ€œAs a core contributing developer of WordPress, I am super excited about Gutenberg. It's an audacious project built on top of JavaScript/React.js. This cutting edge editing experience is going to make building content with WordPress an excellent experience (if not now then in a year or so from now).โ€ - Ahmad

โ€œFor realz, this new release is about "bringing sexy back" to WordPress.โ€ - Adam
