Version 18.9 of WordPress can now be downloaded from the iTunes App Store:
Version 18.9 includes the following new features and improvements:
- New year, new look! We’ve updated the comment threads. You now have a new design for author labels, accessory and share buttons, and row and reply highlighting. We’ve also updated the block editor.
- When editing paragraph blocks, you can highlight text in any color.
- Brand new gallery blocks have the new design by default. And you can easily convert old galleries to the new format automatically.
- The editor auto-scrolls so you always see what you’re typing. No more disappearing text and no more guessing.
- You’ll now see a comment snippet after the content of your post in Reader. This way you can see some of the comments you receive and get into the conversation faster.
- We fixed a bug where the background color for preformatted blocks was not showing on sites with default themes.
