3.3 Status Update

Nothing too major has come up since beta 4 last week. Looking at pushing RC1 tomorrow by dev chat time. There are a few bugs and such; check https://core.trac.wordpress.org/report/6 to keep up and help test incoming patches. A bunch of Help tab patches came in, so I’ll be reviewing all the committed text today and doing a patch with any edits for tomorrow’s RC/string freeze push.

Note to translators: Since we want to get 3.3 launched before the core team meetup if possible (starts Dec 13), that means a little less than two weeks of string freeze. The help tabs may still change before RC tomorrow, but there are two large chunks of text that are new in 3.3 — about.php and index.php (Welcome section) — but have finalized text if you want to get a head start.
