Welcome to the new year, and a brand-new version of Blockstudio! As we start a fresh new year, we're excited to share with you some new features and improvements that we've been working on.
Less wrapper divs
First on the list, we've removed the outer wrapper divs of blocks inside the Gutenberg editor. This change streamlines the developing experience as the structure inside the editor is now closer to what you can expect on the frontend. This is the only breaking change in this release.
InnerBlocks is a powerful new feature that allows you to add additional blocks inside existing blocks. This gives you more flexibility and control over your content, and makes it easy to create more complex layouts. With InnerBlocks, you can now create nested block structures, allowing you to build more advanced and intricate designs. It also provides a level of modularity to your content as you can break down complex designs into smaller, reusable blocks.
Collapsible repeater rows
The repeater field is a type of field that allows you to add multiple instances of a group of fields to a block. This is useful when you need to create complex forms or lists of data, or when you want to add multiple items of the same type to your content.
Rows of the repeater field type can now be minimized, making it easier to navigate and manage large sets of data. This means you can now start the year with a more organized and manageable content editing experience.
InnerBlocks are a great glimpse into the future of how other React components could be used inside Blockstudio, opening up new possibilities for customization and extensibility and making it possible to use other React components inside yor blocks soon.
We hope you enjoy these new features and improvements and look forward to hearing your feedback. As always, if you have any questions or issues, please don't hesitate to contact us.
