This is a summary post to provide additional information regarding the forthcoming live stream preview/walkthrough of WordPress 6.0.
Date, Time & Link
The event will take place on Tuesday, April 5th, at 15:00 UTC via Zoom here. A link to join will be shared here on the morning of the event, if not sooner. The event will be recorded and archived here for on-demand viewing.
This will be a first-of-its-kind event whereby the release squad members are joined by various contributors from #core and other teams to conduct a live (via Zoom) walk-through of the major features in the upcoming release. This will include discussion on the new features, resolved tickets, potential blockers, and other topics in a live, public manner.
While the project has had bug A bug is an error or unexpected result. Performance improvements, code optimization, and are considered enhancements, not defects. After feature freeze, only bugs are dealt with, with regressions (adverse changes from the previous version) being the highest priority. scrubs and other types of discussions and meetings as part of the release cycle, a Zoom event is a bit of a new experiment.
This could be a fun and simple way to bring more people into the release cycle from the community and help build early awareness of what’s to come in the release, further ahead of the release date than previously done. This should ultimately enhance communication among various contributor groups and stakeholders within the WordPress community.
