Welp, WordPress 5.8 has been released and with it comes even more advancement of the Block editor taking over the workflows we've grown accustomed to:


Outside of major in-editor improvements, which seem cool, the biggest changes have come to the Widgets screen. The old Widgets screen we've used for years has been redesigned with Block Editor support, which at first glance is a crowded mess of widget areas with way too much going on.

What are your thoughts on WordPress 5.8? I personally can't find anything in it I've wanted and will be amusingly watching the new Classic Widgets plugin gain rapid popularity.

I personally didn't like the new widget workflow, but it is what it is — the forced future. Let's talk about something I really liked: The theme.json file. It's a great way to customize your writing experience in Block Editor and a great cheatsheet for Developers. You can easily reduce the css file size of your theme and inherit styles from block-editor css.
