Gutenberg 3.3 Released, Adds Archives and Recent Comments Blocks

Gutenberg 3.3 is available and continues the trend of refining the user experience, user interface, and tools. Two new Widget blocks have been added, Post Archives and Recent Comments.

Archive and Recent Comments Widget Blocks

If your archives span across multiple months and years, you can configure the block to display as a drop-down menu. Otherwise, the list may be too long and look unwieldy on your site.

Video blocks now have attributes users can can configure for Autoplay, Loop, Muted, and display Playback Controls.

Video Block Attributes

There are a number of enhancements in this release that you can view via the change log.

Considering Gutenberg 3.2 released earlier this month generally completed the MVP or minimum viable product feature set, users can expect more of these types of releases to tie up loose ends and prepare Gutenberg for merge into WordPress 5.0 later this year.
