Custom Post Type UI Extended Block

Starting with version 1.7.0, Custom Post Type UI Extended formally moved in to the block era for WordPress.

Initial version of the block included a small set of attributes for just the “Default” layout. With the following release, version 1.8.0, more of the attributes were added to the “Default” layout, while also beginning the “List” layout and including a completed “Single Post Type” layout option.

With each subsequent release, we will continue adding more layouts, continuing started layouts, and finishing them as well. This process will continue until we have all available options completed for each available layout.
