This Week in 4.2: April 20 – 26

This is the jump-start post for the fourteenth (and final!) week of the WordPress 4.2 release cycle.

Last week, we tagged RC1 and “hard froze” strings. We’ll likely tag RC2 today as well. We’re still on track for releasing 4.2 this week.

Core Meetings this week:

Priorities this week:

All commits in RC stages must be approved by at least one lead developer, preferably two.

Please, if you’re patching open tickets, ensure you’ve provided enough context on tickets for your fixes to help out those leads who may be coming along to review them.
