WordPress 5.5 Retrospective: We want to hear from you!

While the release team is wrapping up the 5.5 processes, we wanted to reach out to the wider community for perspectives on the process and what could be done in the future to make releases smoother for everyone. 

If you are a WordPress user, developer, writer, content manager, agency, etc., please share comments here on what went well with the release, what went poorly, and what could be improved for future releases of WordPress. We’ll keep the comments on this post open indefinitely, but only capture the comments in the form through Friday, September 11th.

“Regardless of what we discover, we understand and truly believe that everyone did the best job they could, given what they knew at the time, their skills and abilities, the resources available, and the situation at hand.”

–Norm Kerth, Project Retrospectives: A Handbook for Team Review
