It’s coming (Gutenberg that is)

Are you ready for the most significant change to WordPress since, well, probably ever? If you upgraded to WordPress 4.9.8 this week then you should have been presented with the “Try Gutenberg” prompt.

This is the first time the majority of WordPress users will have even heard of the new editor which was announced back in January 2017 and has had a slow rise to fame.
