“The tune of the release will be to refine the experiences introduced in 5.9 and 6.0, weave the various flows into more coherent and fulfilling experiences for users, maintainers, and extenders, and close some gaps in functionality as we start to look towards Phase 3 of the Gutenberg roadmap,” Ventura said.

Users will now be able to explore, see, and alter the structure of their websites with little to no coding expertise thanks to changes made to the template editor in the new WordPress update. The planned editor changes will also make it easier to distinguish between global components like templates, template pieces, and styles with the aim of harmonizing the user interfaces of the template editor and post editor.

Another key area of interest that Ventura has named as “a vital aspect of the creative experience” is patterns. The finding and insertion processes will be improved as part of efforts to make it simpler to develop with patterns. It will be possible to customize patterns for block types and custom post types. Efforts are being made to enhance the block-locking once this new WordPress update rolls out.

The team will also deal with difficulties relating to the slow adoption of features like template components on current legacy themes. Additionally, it will consider the viability of gaining wider access to theme.json editing, theme-switching processes, and the best way to utilize fresh style and template options. process and manage saved patterns.

The global styles interface will continue to advance, and support for limitations, privileges, and curated presets will be improved in the new WordPress update. To increase consistency, dependability, and user pleasure, the 6.1 release should enable users to control web fonts, provide responsive typography, and enhance the blocks toolkit.
