Gutenberg 15.1 released on 8 February 2023. This release integrates the Openverse to the media inserter, brings new shadow effect presets to Global Styles, ability to add custom CSS for single blocks, ‘paste style’ option, featured image resizing options, and much more.
Openverse Integrates with Media inserter
Openverse is now integrated with the Inserter in the Editor. Making it easier to add images to your pages and posts. Elevate the look of the pages and posts using the free stock photos that are available directly from the Media tab.
Global Styles now supports shadow presets
How would you like to have the shadow of your buttons sir? Natural, Crisp, Sharp, or Soft? Everything is possible with Gutenberg 15.1.
Introducing four new shadow presets to Global Styles UI. There will be more additions in the upcoming versions. You can also create new and custom shadow styles using ‘theme.json’.
Add custom CSS for single blocks
Previously, custom CSS can be added via the Global Styles UI and it was applied to all the existing blocks. But with Gutenberg 15.1, you can add custom CSS to each block.
Control the Navigation Menu from the Site Editor
Navigation menu has been added to the site editor sidebar, which enables you to manage, and control the site’s navigation menu from the Site editor. If you click on the Navigation menu, you can see the list of items in each menu and navigate through them directly.
Paste Style option
The previous version of Gutenberg (i.e. 15.0) introduced us to the “Copy styles” option. But, it was still unclear how to paste the copied style to a block. To avoid that confusion, the “Paste styles” option has been added in this version.
Featured image resizing
With Gutenberg 15.1 you can adjust the size of the featured image placeholder in posts and images. This also includes additional scaling options like ‘Cover’, ‘Contain’, or ‘Fill’, that determine how the image will appear in the container.
The block editor is continually improving in terms of versatility, functionality, and user experience with the frequent addition of new features.
