The Gutenberg editor will be the next big thing in WordPress, slated to completely replace the current editor when WordPress 5.0 is released. The new editor will allow for far richer and intuitive editing experience, bringing WordPress ever closer to having a true WYSIWYG editing.
While opinions are split within the WordPress community on the merits of such major change, one thing is clear: it is coming, quite soon. Most of us who have updated WordPress to version 4.9.8 would have seen the notice in the dashboard announcing the imminent introduction of the Gutenberg editor into WordPress core.
And today, with the release of version 2.5, Graphene is now fully compatible with Gutenberg. What you see while editing using Graphene and Gutenberg is literally what you will get when the post is published.
We encourage our users to try out the new editor and get yourselves familiarised with it. We would also greatly appreciate any feedback related to Gutenberg compatibility with Graphene, as we work towards deeper integration with the editor.
Version 2.5 update is available immediate for Graphene and Graphene Plus. Click the links below to view the full changelog of this release.
