I bit the bullet and published, on wordpress.org, the latest version of oik a couple of days before WordPress 5.0 is due to be released.
This site is currently running WordPress 5.2.
I believe I know how to use Gutenberg, so I’m comfortable using it on my sites. I know some of its limitations, so I’ve got the Classic Editor activated when I need to correct its behaviour.
I’ve not had a major disaster where my site’s not been accessible, but have suffered issues where my blocks no longer worked so my content was screwed.
It’s a ridiculous decision to release WordPress 5.0 the day before WordCamp US 2018. To many it appears to be a publicity stunt. To me it’s just confirms how badly the 5.0 development has been managed.
About as well planned as my release of oik v3.2.8.
