Bug fix release 3.8.4 is in QA testing and a few bugs have been found but nothing considered ‘blocker’ yet. We discussed disabling the Feedback feature but ultimately decided to simply demote it in the “What’s New” message.
Since support is a concern, we talked about ways we can improve the Forum experience and make it simpler to maintain. A message to have people include their blog URL was mentioned, but we may want to take it one step further and do the forum merge finally.
2.5 testing continues, more bugs were found in QA round 3 so QA round 4 was started late last week. It’s looking promising though. We’ll keep testing and then release the RC to the G+ beta testers. We’re probably looking at Monday next week for a release date considering the amount of testing needed and the RC period.
We also decided to start releasing QA builds to the beta group moving forward.
Dev chat time change
Since northern America has now moved back one hour, we decided to move the dev chat time to 17:00 UTC.
Continue Android and iOS QA testing. After the meeting it was decided that we’ll break the iOS code freeze for 3.8.4 and fix some additional serious bugs and then do a round 2 of QA testing.
The UX subgroups outlined these tasks: Consume & React: decide on how to unify the commenting/moderation experience. NUX: simplify the welcome guide, fix login issues, and create better ‘empty’ views. Posting: talk about wireframes and squash as many post editor bugs as we can.
In the last meeting we briefly talked about the Handbook and this was brought up this week again. Since the iOS section is still to be completed we decided to move the conversation to this p2 to keep things moving.
Next Dev Chat
The next dev chat will be held at 17:00 UTC on Nov 11 in #wordpress-mobile on Freenode. Mark your calendars and make sure to update the time. This is 9AM PST.
