WordPress 4.9.3 release pushed to February 5th

The 4.9.3 release was due out today (January 30th) however a delayed RC with a short testing window has meant it is better to move RC to after dev chat tomorrow on the 31st and reschedule the 4.9.3 release to Monday, February 5th so that a release is not pushed immediately before the weekend.

In the meantime please continue to test the beta release: 4.9.3-beta1 (ZIP). For more information on testing see Beta Testing. The current 4.9.3-beta1 contains several enhancements and fixes but importantly note the removal of JSHint from core and see ticket #42850 for more details. For a full list of changes see the beta1 release post, tickets closed and the changesets committed.
