WPWeekly Episode 337 – Gutenberg User Experiences, Release Timelines, and the Classic Editor

In this episode, John James Jacoby and I break down what’s happening with Gutenberg. We discuss our trials and tribulations with the editor, the release timeline, and calls from members of the community to delay WordPress 5.0 until January. We also share details on how long the Classic Editor plugin will be supported. Last but not least, we talk about the possible release strategy of shipping point releases every two weeks after WordPress 5.0 is released.
