Wow! A lot has happened since the last round-up post. Where to begin? I just returned from WordCamp Atlanta and among other things, I listened to every Gutenberg related talk: Micah Wood, Rich Tabor and Victor Ramirez. They did a terrific job helping content creators, developers, publishers and consultants dive deeper into the most significant change in WordPress since Custom Post Types. The possibilities are endless.
There has been a lot more going in the last four weeks, and I hope you come back to this post multiple times to take it all in.
- The Accessibility Report via WPCampus was published.
- Building AMP Stories will be possible soon, check out the Alpha version of the AMP plugin
- After Drupal, another CMS OctoberCMS is testing the waters in using Gutenberg as editor, and there is a Laravel plugin called Laraberg.
- Two more version of Gutenberg plugin 5.5 and 5.6 came out.
These are only five of the 30+ other notable blog posts, plugins, themes and tutorials around the block editor listed. Enjoy! I am so glad you are here! — Yours, Birgit

- Full Technical Report (329 pages, PDF)
- The Gutenberg developers combined the 90 created issues into the Project: Accessiblity Audit. After a couple of days, 14 Issues were closed, not because they were resolved, but because they were either duplicates or reopened as Trac tickets for WordPress Core, mostly Media Library.
