Gutenberg is coming to WordPress imminently and Matt Walks through where we are with this imminent update. Gutenberg will enable an evolutionary shift with WordPress as a content management system and publishing system.
Among other things it will make it easier for anyone to publish and easily layout content on their WordPress powered websites.
