4.6 Release Dry Run

In preparation for the release on Tuesday, August 16 at 19:00 UTC, we’ll do a dry run on Monday, August 15 at 16:00 UTC.

The dry run will include:

  • Testing various features, including Shiny Updates, native fonts, comment/site/network queries with and without a persistent object cache
  • Generally testing the admin and common features using a multitude of devices and browsers
  • Running our usual unit tests including the specialty groups like multisite, Ajax, and external HTTP
  • Doing scratch installs and upgrades from a variety of older versions
  • Triaging any bugs reported against trunk, most easily found at the top of report 40
  • Updating the credits API
  • Reviewing the Codex release page
  • Moving about page images to the CDN
  • Checking status of translations
  • Reviewing the release post

If you’d like to help out and participate, we’d love to have you. Please come prepared to test!
