The current editor of WordPress TinyMCE is being upgraded to a new editor named Gutenberg. A small core team is working with many contributors behind the scene for more than six months. This posts is aim at keeping myself up to date on its development, developers concerns & preparing myself ready adapt when it is ready later this year.
