Gutenberg is developed separately https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg and the latest version currently is 7.2.0.

How to find out which version of Gutenberg is included in my WordPress installation?


The code that goes into core doesn’t necessarily reflect the exact code that is in a specific version of the Gutenberg plugin which is why it is hard to determine which version of Gutenberg is included in the core WordPress.

  • Please be more specific and explain the differences. :) – fuxia Jan 11 at 12:57

You can find the versions in WordPress here with this recently created document: https://developer.wordpress.org/block-editor/principles/versions-in-wordpress/ You weren't alone in wanting to have this information :) As mentioned above, it can be tricky to directly line up versions but this is the closest approximation currently. When WordPress 5.5 is launched, this document will be updated.

I don't know if there's a way to figure this out for every version; but for 5.3, I eventually found this official blog post after extensive searching. (WordPress 5.3 has Gutenberg 6.3 by default)

    The block editor has continued its rapid iteration since WordPress 5.0, and now has Gutenberg version 6.5 bundled with WordPress 5.3; that’s TWELVE releases all bundled into 5.3 (versions 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 5.7, 5.8, 5.9, 6.0, 6.1, 6.2, 6.3, 6.4, and 6.5)! Bug fixes and performance improvements from Gutenberg versions 6.6 and 6.7 will also be part of 5.3 – Haris Feb 12 at 11:51
  • There is no definite way to tell which features of Gutenberg would be available in which version of WordPress. – Haris Feb 12 at 11:51
  • Good clarification ;and this is being tracked at core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/48329 – Will. Feb 12 at 17:31
