Upcoming Releases Discussion
Point release A set of releases or versions having the same minor version number may be collectively referred to as .x , for example version 5.2.x to refer to versions 5.2, 5.2.1, 5.2.3, and all other versions in the 5.2 (five dot two) branch of that software. Minor Releases often make improvements to existing features and functionality.
@audrasjb, co-lead of 5.2.2, outlined some points about the small number of tickets for the milestone. Since more than 60 tickets are committed in trunk A directory in Subversion containing the latest development code in preparation for the next major release cycle. If you are running "trunk", then you are on the latest revision./5.3, the release team suggested looking at landing some of those in the minor. The criteria, per the release handbook: tickets need to be self-contained and may not add new functions/files/filters to Core Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress..
As a result, we have made some minor adjustments to the schedule:
- Release Candidate 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). 1: Monday, June 10, 2019, 8:00 PM GMT
- Bug scrub: Thursday, June 06, 2019, 5:00 PM GMT
- Release Candidate 2: Thursday, June 13, 2019, 5:00 PM GMT
- Final Release: Tuesday, June 18, 2019, 5:00 PM GMT
Major release A release, identified by the first two numbers (3.6), which is the focus of a full release cycle and feature development. WordPress uses decimaling count for major release versions, so 2.8, 2.9, 3.0, and 3.1 are sequential and comparable in scope.
@desrosj reminded the group that @chanthaboune is still working on the logistics for the next major.
