How does it work?
In the 5.0 branch A directory in Subversion. WordPress uses branches to store the latest development code for each major release (3.9, 4.0, etc.). Branches are then updated with code for any minor releases of that branch. Sometimes, a major version of WordPress and its minor versions are collectively referred to as a "branch", such as "the 4.0 branch"., you can now run
npm install && grunt build:js. That will download the NPM packages and build the scripts that need to be registered. Updating a script is a matter of changing its version number in the
package.json and running the same command again.
We’ve got the following tasks left:
Must haves for RC One of the final stages in the version release cycle, this version signals the potential to be a final release to the public. Also see alpha (beta).
- Ticket for generating JS translations on translate.wordpress.org The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://wordpress.org/: https://meta.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/3876 (has-patch A special text file that describes changes to code, by identifying the files and lines which are added, removed, and altered. It may also be referred to as a diff. A patch can be applied to a codebase for testing.). Automatically load JS translations in WordPress core: https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/45103
Should haves for RC
- Have a shared ESLint config between Gutenberg The Gutenberg project is the new Editor Interface for WordPress. The editor improves the process and experience of creating new content, making writing rich content much simpler. It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc. https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/ and WordPress core. Owned by @netweb
Nice to haves for Beta A pre-release of software that is given out to a large group of users to trial under real conditions. Beta versions have gone through alpha testing in-house and are generally fairly close in look, feel and function to the final product; however, design changes often occur as part of the process., maybe RC
- Shortcode A shortcode is a placeholder used within a WordPress post, page, or widget to insert a form or function generated by a plugin in a specific location on your site. package ticket: https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/44987
- A11y Accessibility (commonly shortened to a11y) refers to the design of products, devices, services, or environments for people with disabilities. The concept of accessible design ensures both “direct access” (i.e. unassisted) and “indirect access” meaning compatibility with a person’s assistive technology (for example, computer screen readers).
