    If you are looking for the Gutenberg demonstration by Matías Ventura, it starts around 35:00 minutes into the video

    This looks great so far! A completely new writing experience, especially the block inserter!

    Is there an official timeline for Gutenberg release somewhere? Matt talks about “April 2018” in this speech, but that seems not possible at the moment.

      As far as I know there has been no change in the release date.

      After listing to Matt’s SOTW a second time and some discussions with the Gutenberg team members,I wrote this post: “Gutenberg Comes in 5 Phases to WordPress Ecosystem” – There is no release date set for WordPress 5.0 when Gutenberg comes into Core. “When it’s ready” is still the default answer.

      The team is right now working on “Feature Complete” milestone on Github and you can also see a “Merge Proposal” milestone. And of course, there are still quite a few issues to be resolved.
