 > @aristath or @hellofromTonya Would you be able to provide a short update
 what the next steps are? The reason I ask is that I came across a few
 different sites mentioning a PHP API, but from what I can see that did not
 make it in.

 Hello @grapplerulrich, a formal PHP API was not ready to merge into Core
 in 6.0. A stopgate though was included in 6.0 that handled web fonts and
 style variations defined in the theme's `theme.json` file (see changeset

 == Webfonts API

 Where? In the Gutenberg repo
 Project board: https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/projects/66
 Ongoing roadmap: https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/issues/41479

 Status: WIP project / feature coordination and wrangling

 Next steps:
 1. This week: I'll share Mátias' vision, stages, and data flow and API
 diagrams in the ongoing roadmap issue.
 2. Then tasks prioritization will happen (with architectural needs likely
 being the first priority > i.e. to settle on the architecture for
 remaining work to build on top of it).

 I invite and welcome you to contribute.
