Plugin developers The new wp add script before…

PluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the Plugin Directory or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party developers: The new wp_add_script_before() function has been removed from WordPress 3.3. (In r19573.)

In an IRCIRC Internet Relay Chat, a network where users can have conversations online. IRC channels are used widely by open source projects, and by WordPress. The primary WordPress channels are #wordpress and #wordpress-dev, on discussion it was discovered that it was not architected in an ideal way, and some inconsistencies were discovered relating to how scripts are loaded. For more see the end of #11520.

If you want to echo data to be used in your script, you can continue to use wp_localize_script() as before. Since it now uses json_encode(), it is a bit more flexible (can do nested arrays, for example). In 3.4 we hope to introduce a few more enhancements in this area.

(For those just tuning in, please note that wp_add_script_before() was originally new to 3.3, so this will not affect existing plugins.)
