WordPress 4.9.2 patches the Flash fallback files vulnerability

These files have been removed and if needed they can be obtained from the MediaElement Flash Fallback plugin. There are a total of 21 bugs fixed in this release, including the one preventing posts save in Firefox.
Guten Block Toolkit makes the Gutenberg Blocks creation easier and simplified
The author of the Gutenberg Boilerplate has launched a toolkit who really makes easier the creation of Gutenberg Blocks, by providing no configuration, no lock-in, and one dependency.
The process has 3 steps to follow:
- install Node version 8 or higher on a local server;
- run the create-guten-block command and provide a name for the plugin that will be created – also creates the folder structure necessary to maintain the project;
- run the NPM start command which runs the plugin in development mode.
The toolkit is available for free on Github: https://github.com/ahmadawais/create-guten-block.
