WordPress for iOS
Last week we were all working on the 4.0 update, and officially have called “code freeze” as of this past Saturday. There are still a small number of bug fixes (five-ish) that we’re going to get in early this week. Officially we’re on QA/testing duty until the 13th. That’s when we’re planning on submitting the app to Apple for review. This week will be testing and bug fixes for 4.0.
WordPress for Android
Last week we released two releases. 2.6.2 had a good number of tweaks and fixes in it. 2.6.3 fixed an issue with connecting over SSL. This week work is continuing on 2.7, which is a blend of niceties, nothing totally new.
Google Summer of Code 2014
WordPress.org was accepted as a participating organization in the 2014 Google Summer of Code. A number of potential project ideas for mobile are listed on the Codex. Students wishing to throw ideas past the listed mentors for native mobile development are encouraged to talk via Freenode IRC in #wordpress-gsoc or #wordpress-mobile. Student applications are accepted by Google starting March 10 2014.
The next dev chat will be held at 17:00 UTC on Mar 3rd, 2014 in #wordpress-mobile on Freenode.
