What I love about the welcome modal, is that it gives developers another tool to use when onboarding new customers or introducing new features.

A really cool addition to WordPress 5.4 is gradient background colors for the buttons, cover, and column blocks. You can select either a Linear or Radial gradient type in the Block Settings menu. In the Block Settings menu, you can add gradient points and adjust the color. The Headings block will now offer control of the text color.

WordPress versions below 5.4 for limit the text in a Paragraph block to a single color. But, now you can highlight any string of text in a paragraph block and customize the color in the block toolbar.

The Latest Post block will now display the featured image.
