Dev Chat Summary: December 19

Dev Chat Scheduling

Here’s a reminder that the normal meeting won’t be happening on December 26, though there are likely to core folks around to answer questions for an open floor session. We’ll resume normal dev chats on January 2.

5.0.2 Update

WordPress 5.0.2 has just been released! Thank you to everyone who contributed.

5.0.3 Schedule and Scope

The following timeline has been proposed for WordPress 5.0.3:

  • Release Candidate: January 7, 2019.
  • General Release: January 9, 2019.

There have been some bugs reported in the MIME type handling changes in 5.0.1, these would be good to fix in 5.0.3. Additionally, there are bug fixes in the block editor which could also land.

5.0.3 will need a release lead: if you’re able to help out, please comment on this post, or reach out directly.

5.1 Schedule and Scope

Feedback on the proposed WordPress 5.1 schedule has all been positive, so let’s lock it in!

Milestone Dates

  • Beta 1: January 10, 2019
  • Release Candidate 1: February 7, 2019
  • General Release: February 21, 2019

The primary feature focuses for 5.1 will be the PHP upgrade notice and plugin error protection, and block editor enhancements.

There have been some minor features already merged into trunk, but nothing that will need to be reverted.
