Feature Plugin chat notes for Jan 26

Agenda

  • Review the feature plugins for status updates from leads
  • Open floor for feature plugin proposal

Feature Plugin Updates

  • Background Image Cropper: @celloexpressions asked for feedback for the Background Image Cropper. Current thinking is this is better explored as a standard enhancement for core. See #32403.
  • Customizer: @westonruter left status on the blog post for the Customize Pane Resizer, Customize Device preview (along with @celloexpressions), Selective Refresh, and Transactions. Please comment there if you’re interested in helping out where needed (especially requested for the Pane Resizer).
  • Fields API: @sc0ttkclark updated: term add/edit is in: props @technosailor. Team has been working on simplifying the code required for each screen implementing the Fields API. Scott posted an update on make/core and reports getting lots of feedback (especially from @helen, @drew, @technosailor & @celloexpressions)
  • Shiny Updates:  @obenland updated – Lots of progress in the last week. @ipstenu helped tremendously in getting it multisite compliant. Team decided to not pursue shiny activations/deactivations for a whole set of reasons, mostly around redirects on subsequent page loads, and fatal error protection.
    Currently working on enabling theme updates without having to open the modal, and revamping update-core.php.  An update will be posted to the make/core blog soon. The team needs more feedback and testing! Testers can get the current plugin from the wordpress.org repository.
  • WP-API: @danielbachhuber updated – released beta 11 yesterday. The team is meeting in person (minus @rachelbaker) this week at A Day of REST. Summary: in the home stretch, but there’s a ton more work to do. Friday’s contributor day (at the Day of REST) will hopefully get other people diving in and contributing to the final push.
