Strings for WordPress 3.5 are now frozen.
The targeted release date remains December 5, 2012 (the same date we announced at the start of the cycle).
Unfortunately, this means I’m very late in formally declaring a string freeze. This is entirely on me and I accept responsibility for the delay.
With the exception of the About page, we’ve had only a handful of string changes over the last week. Most translations seem to be in fantastic shape this release, which is a great sight to see. I hope all of you are able to step up and push through.
If you find any typos or other issues, please report them to http://core.trac.wordpress.org/. If you have any questions (or are just plain frustrated with me), feel free to leave a comment.
