Related: #11015

This pull request seeks to change the minimum required WordPress version from 4.9.8 to 5.0.0 . This is a prerequisite to subsequent pull requests which will remove redundant PHP code to fall back to that which is provided by core itself, in an effort to (a) keep the code of the plugin focused, (b) reduce inconsistencies between the plugin and core, and (c) validate core extensibility through plugin use. See also #11015.

Maintainer Note: This will require a corresponding update to the plugin SVN repository in the plugin release following this merge. Specifically, the "Requires at least" field of readme.txt should be changed to 5.0.0.

Testing instructions:

You could use a downgrading plugin such as WP Downgrade to verify that Gutenberg deactivates itself with a WordPress 4.9.x installation.

I think you need to rebase to make the unit tests pass.

FWIW: If we make the version number a %s placeholder translators wouldn't have to update translations for that string every time.
