Gutenberg 3.5 is out with another long list of features, but the clear majority of items are improvements that refine and polish the user experience, like styles for checkbox components and states for buttons.
About 50% of all Gutenberg downloads have happened in the past week since the callout in WordPress 4.9.8. There are over 100,000 active installations now.
Gary Pendergast blogged about the long-term vision and benefits of the Gutenberg project, noting its key characteristics that will shape the future of WordPress: interface unity, platform agnosticism, concept simplification, a common base, and a design language. Gary concludes, “Ultimately, the WordPress experience, community, and ecosystem will grow stronger through this evolution.”
