As part of WordCamp Europe, Matt Mullenweg laid out the roadmap for Gutenberg over the next three months. In July, there will be a prompt to push more Gutenberg usage (as a plugin). Then, we might see a WordPress 5.0 beta in August.
Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com also made a big acquisition. And in even more announcements, WordCamp US 2019 will be in St. Louis.
