This summary post provides information regarding the forthcoming live stream walk-through preview of WordPress 6.1.
Date, Time, and Location
The event will take place on Tuesday, September 13, 2022, at 16:00 UTC via Zoom. Please use this Zoom link to attend. Attendance will require you to be logged into your Zoom account to watch. The event will be recorded and archived for on-demand viewing.
WordPress 6.1 release squad members will join contributors from #core and the broader WordPress community to conduct an informal preview of the major features in the upcoming release. This Zoom event will include discussion on the new features, resolved tickets, potential blockers, and other topics in a live, public manner.
After the success of the inaugural 6.0 walk-through, this and future releases can expect to see this as a new part of the release cycle.
It’s a fun and simple way to bring more people from the community into the release cycle activities, and preview elements from the upcoming release ahead of the release date. It is also an excellent opportunity to foster open and transparent communication and connect various members, groups, and stakeholders from the WordPress community.
Event attendance is open to the general public, and it will be recorded.
The 6.1 walk-through panel will be composed of a moderator to help guide the conversation among a subset of the WordPress 6.1 release squad members:
- Technical Note Taker
- Support and logistics
Together the panelists will demo features and discuss some of what’s to come in the 6.1 release. The presenters will also answer questions related to the release from attendees if time allows. The recording as well as all questions will be collected and addressed in a follow-up summary post.
