WordPress 5.0 will present one, according to all manufacturers, revolutionary new editor called Gutenberg. So dissimilar to TinyMCE that it has divided the WordPress community into two camps. Some who sees Gutenberg as a very inspiring and creative opportunity to let you more freely style posts and pages, others who are really upset when they see serious compatibility problems and / or an interface that is anything but intuitive.
We have gathered a lot of links here for articles that highlight Gutenberg from both angles. However, keep in mind that WordPress promised that Gutenberg should not be launched until all promised will be ready. Start watching the film with Morten Rand-Hendriksen if you are not familiar with what Gutenberg is.

Where does Xponent stand in all this? We are clearly optimistic and believe that Gutenberg can be the solution to the web’s constant design problems.

They are both optimistic and see the possibilities of a whole new way of working as an editor and designer in WordPress in the future.
