Items discussed at this week’s #wordpress-sfd support:
WordPress security release
Update. Do it now. I’ll wait.
Versions 4.0 beta 3, 3.9.2, 3.8.4, 3.7.4 were updated and co-released with the Drupal security team. That’s pretty impressive with all those versions and coordination with another platform.
Please be aware that releases prior to the latest (3.9.2) are not supported and everyone should be encouraged to upgrade.
WordPress 4.0 beta ongoing testing
This portion of the meetup was very interactive. @Clorith, @Ipstenu and @MacManX talked about and confirmed a big with the current beta. You can see the whole conversation via this link and Mika raised a new ticket for that issue right on the spot.
It was like watching the alpha/beta sub-forum being worked on but live. A very cool conversation to watch.
Contributions to the Troubleshooting Handbook
At WCNYC’s contributor day there were some new people joining and they could write! That was a great thing and you can see some of that in this page.
That handbook still needs love and attention but progress is being made. It was great meeting new people who jumped right in and started contributing like that. All Mika and I had to do was ask and provide some input.
