WordPress Information

This website has been constructed with WordPress software and it is hosted on WordPress.com.

WordPress was originally based on TinyMCE. This version is now known as the Classic Editor. Around 2017 the Gutenburg project was commenced to rewrite WordPress. In outline, the basis of all functionality was to be a block, and it became known, not unnaturally, as the Block Editor.

The first version of the block editor was launched near the end of 2018, and subsequent releases have appeared every 3 to 4 months. As shown below, I began to pen brief summaries that generally coincide with individual releases. They are probably principally useful as background material for anybody who is interested in the history of the product.
