This is a very small update to ensure compatibility with WordPress 5.4, which is being released at the end of the month.

This update makes some changes to classes used in the block editor, which have changed in 5.4.

  • Fix: Block editor classes changed in WordPress 5.4
  • Fix: More specific heading selectors in block editor

  1. It would be nice if the changelog was accessible from the the “View version details” link in the WordPress Appearance tab when there’s a theme update. Currently the link goes to your theme page at

  2. the default install i did with generatepress premium did not use a child theme. If I update will it affect my site negatively?

  3. Hey Tom – This might be a stupid question since you are all developing your own blocks. I would be very interested in your thoughts of Gutenberg blocks vs say Elementor, Beaver Builder, etc. –

    From my perspective, those visual editors make design and layouts so much faster, but I’ve found myself using less and less of their Widgets to keep the speed of the site up.

    I’ve also found removing all the Gutenburg CSS etc – sites load faster. You must have a better understanding of the roadmap. What are your thoughts?

    Thanks again. Just an FYI. Every time I think “I don’t need a theme with these Visual editors”. I install the barebones theme(s) and within an hour I’ve dumped the idea and back with GeneratePress (-;
