Shiny Updates V2: Partial Merge Approved

During the extra meeting held today, Monday June 13th, 2016 at 13:00 MDT, Shiny Updates V2 was approved for a partial merge to core. The changes that will be merged are install, update, and delete for themes and plugins in single and multisite.

This affects:

  • plugin.php
  • plugin-install.php
  • import.php
  • themes.php
  • themes-install.php
  • The “more-detail” modals in those screens

The parts that will not be merged are the changes to update-core.php. The team now has time until Wednesday, June 15th 23:59 UTC to get the core patch committed.

Congratulations and thanks to the Shiny Updates team for all the hard work they’ve put in this release. Most notably @obenland, @swissspidy, and @mapk. Thanks to everyone who reviewed, helped test, or otherwise contributed to Shiny Updates V2, we hope to see you involved with Shiny Updates V3. 🙂
