Drupal Gutenberg, the Gutenberg module for Drupal that was created by Frontkom, has released version 2.6 with compatibility for Drupal 10. The module offers Drupal users a better authoring experience using blocks, allowing them to quickly build landing pages and save reusable blocks inside the editor without any code required.
“Installing Gutenberg slashed our content creation time by 80%,” a content creator at Fortum, a Finnish state-owned energy company, reported to the Drupal Gutenberg maintainers. “We are able to create more content in a shorter time, allowing us to be much more agile than we used to.”
Version 2.6 includes the following fixes and enhancements:
- Handle translations for mapped fields
#3320395: Handle translations for mapped fields
- Support for field groups
#3096002: Support Field Groups
- Fixes for Claro #3142400: Compatibility with Claro/Gin theme
Drupal Gutenberg has removed support for Drupal 8 in this release. Version 2.6 is fully compatible with Drupal 10, released yesterday. Drupal 10 was previously scheduled for June 2022 but pushed back to December. This release shipped with all the new features of CKEditor 5, which boasts a more modular architecture, but it is a complete rewrite of the previous version with no backwards compatibility.
CKEditor is the most popular editor among Drupal users and is now the default editor. Drupal users can easily swap out their editor on per content-type basis, and the Gutenberg module can be enabled as an alternative to CKEditor. The module is superior to CKEditor when it comes to design controls and building layouts.
The maintainers of Drupal Gutenberg hold periodic contributor meetings on a bi-weekly basis, every second Friday at 15-16 CET on Google Meet. They have fully embraced the vision of Gutenberg as a platform where blocks can be used to edit content and design across a variety of applications. If you are a user of the Drupal Gutenberg module, the maintainers are requesting feedback through a 30-second survey.
