Gutenberg Landing Page needs to be updated post 5.0 launch

Reported by @johnparris in Slack

on there are some buttons for downloading Gutenberg the plugin, with some text below about it coming to WP 5.0. What's the process for getting that updated to reflect that WP 5.0 is available with Gutenberg included? It's a nice place to point casual end users who want an overview, but the buttons make it a little confusing for now.

Any suggestions as to how exactly the content should change? Specific rewording changes and such.

Hey @Otto42,

I was thinking something along the lines of Download WordPress Today or Get WordPress, to match the button text on the main site, and have that send people to the WordPress download page instead of the Gutenberg plugin page.

The text below the button could be adjusted to something like:

As of WordPress 5.0, Gutenberg is the default editor in WordPress. The classic editor will be available as a plugin if needed.

Maybe have a small sentence and link after that to mention the Gutenberg plugin as a beta testing plugin for the next phases? Not sure.

I think I like that idea better, but if we tack it to 5.0 then it needs to be updated all the time. I think 5.0 can be removed from the button, since that's "the WordPress" people get when they download it today. I think it makes sense for the text below to have some kind of mention of 5.0, worded so that it's clear that "as of" or "beginning in" or something like that. That doesn't require ongoing maintenance, and it's very clear that it's also available in 5.1, 6.0, etc.

That patch will need regular updates anyway as phase 2 of Gutenberg rolls out.
