WPTavern: Gutenberg 3.3 Released, Adds Archives and Recent Comments Blocks

Gutenberg 3.3 is available and continues the trend of refining the user experience, user interface, and tools. Two new Widget blocks have been added, Post Archives and Recent Comments.

Video blocks now have attributes users can can configure for Autoplay, Loop, Muted, and display Playback Controls.
