The WooCommerce team released a small security and fix release this week. It includes some security improvements for SelectWoo as well as other minor bug fixes. Highly recommended that you verify and deploy right away.
We deployed Gutenberg 8.3 to our verification sites when it was released last week. Generally seems pretty stable, but we did find some issues.

This is a new series of posts about themes, plugins, and blocks we use and recommend. First up is the duplicate Post plugin which was just acquired by Yoast.
We hit a big issue with the Gutenberg 8.3 update. The support team at Yoast helped us to identify the cause as a Gutenberg experiments setting, but we should have caught it first.
The WordPress 5.4.2 Security and Maintenance Release is now available. It corrects a bug that allows spammers to index in search engines results pages comments that are still awaiting moderation.
The WooCommerce team announced the availability of WooCommerce 4.1.1 yesterday. This is a security and fix release. It is highly recommended to apply the release as soon as possible.
The Gutenberg team continues to push the Block Editor forward. Here at Outcome Labs, we have moved all of our company sites and almost all new client projects over to the Block Editor as the primary tool for both content creation and for layouts.
On April 2nd, be sure to catch WPBlockTalk. This will be a live, virtual event with speakers who’ve been key to designing and developing the block editor.
