WordPress April Roundup (2023): Collaboration Phase Planning, Gutenberg Updates, 20th Anniversary Celebrations, and much more

Howdy, People of WordPress! The talks in April have mainly centered around WordPress 6.2 – ‘Dolphy.’ However, there have been discussions about other interesting topics such as Phase 3 planning, Gutenberg updates, 20th anniversary planning, and much more. Let’s take a closer look at each of these in detail in the April Roundup of WordPress.

Phase 3: Collaboration Phase Planning

  • WordPress has been transforming the way users create and manage their content on websites.
  • Things started to change rapidly with the introduction of blocks in WordPress 5.0, which allowed users to create and edit the contents of the page using simple blocks.
  • Followed by a second phase, bringing the same editing experience to the rest of the site – Full Site Editing.
  • Where creators were able to create an entire website from header to footer.
  • Now we are entering the third phase, which is going to be centered around fostering seamless collaboration.
  • Where creators and teams can work together in WordPress.
  • In this phase, the community will be working on bringing pretty cool functionalities like Real-time collaborations, Asynchronous collaboration, Publishing flows, Post revisions interface, and much more.
  • I am thrilled at the prospect of collaborating in real-time with SEO optimizers, UX/UI designers, and developers. 

Gutenberg Updates

  • Gutenberg 15.5 released on 5th April. This version comes with pretty cool user interface improvements like Patterns as template starters, ability to modify captions via styles interface, experimental grid layout support, last modified display date, and much more.
  • Gutenberg 15.6 released on 19th April. This version comes with a new details block, spacer block presets, style variations in site editor, border support to cover blocks and much more.
