I was recently having a discussion with one of my client who’s a blogger about WordPress Gutenberg Editor and She was like “what is WordPress Gutenberg”?!
Although the WordPress Gutenberg Editor had around for a while merely as a plugin, it became the official WordPress Editor on WordPress v5.0 which was released on December 6, 2018.
