Team Gandalf Update

Last week marked the end of our second cycle and the beginning of our sprint to get things done. We began by doing just that: last Friday, we merged the theme customizer into core. There’s still quite a bit to do and polish, so please keep that in mind. Development is being tracTrac An open source project by Edgewall Software that serves as a bug tracker and project management tool for WordPress.(k)ed at #19910.

In the past week, we’ve introduced better JSJS JavaScript, a web scripting language typically executed in the browser. Often used for advanced user interfaces and behaviors. APIs, working preview navigation (you can click URLs and it works, hooray), namespaced attributes (which will allow us to enable form submission within previews), and more. We also uncovered and fixed a fairly insane bugbug A bug is an error or unexpected result. Performance improvements, code optimization, and are considered enhancements, not defects. After feature freeze, only bugs are dealt with, with regressions (adverse changes from the previous version) being the highest priority. that stemmed from a low-level bug in Opera’s JS engine. Good times.

Moving forward, the main goals are to integrate more setting types (headers, widgets), improve the refreshing process, polish the UIUI User interface, and remove any vestigial 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 cruft. Dominik’s time will be limited over the next few weeks due to exams, so if any of this sounds exciting to you, please let me know.
