Pretty excited about Gutenberg

Gutenberg 4.0 has arrived. I’m planning to spend a lot more time using it in the week ahead. I’m really looking forward to it rolling out as the default WordPress editor! https://make.wordpress.org/core/2018/10/11/whats-new-in-gutenberg-11th-october/ It works pretty well on mobile too! 😁
