A big change is coming to the WordPress editor!

Gutenberg will transform the WordPress editor into a powerful tool that will enable you to create rich content with more control over layouts. Gutenberg introduces the concept of ‘content blocks,’ and it’s sure to have a massive and long-lasting impact on how you create content in WordPress.
The current editor got us through the last 14 years. We want Gutenberg to get us through the next 14.” — Matt Mullenweg, Creator of WordPress
