Quick links to agenda sections
Welcome to the two team reps for the remainder of 2024: Joe McGill (@joemcgill) and Sarah Norris (@mikachan)! With the increasing collaborative approach between coreCoreCore is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. and core-editor, it is wonderful to have reps from both parts of the team. A post formally introducing them will be published later this month.
@hellofromtonya and @webcommsat are doing a handover, and Abha (@abhanonstopnewsuk on SlackSlackSlack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/. to tagtagA directory in Subversion. WordPress uses tags to store a single snapshot of a version (3.6, 3.6.1, etc.), the common convention of tags in version control systems. (Not to be confused with post tags.) with any updates) will continue to curate the agenda until Sarah is back on February 21.
This post recommends next steps, including a rename of the channel as ‘outreach’ to use it more widely to reach site builders and extenders. It could also be used to assist several projects which could use Slack support in the WordPress space for discussion, clarification, and overall ruminating on future features coming to WordPress.
Feedback deadline: February 12, 2024.
A Hallway Hangout is scheduled on February 20, 2024, at 15:00 UTC to further discuss this proposal, the comments, and the next steps.

17.7 RC1 is set to be released this week, marking the last GutenbergGutenbergThe Gutenberg project is the new Editor Interface for WordPress. The editor improves the process and experience of creating new content, making writing rich content much simpler. It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc. https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/ version to make it into 6.5.
Font Library: work continues to merge the Font Library APIAPIAn API or Application Programming Interface is a software intermediary that allows programs to interact with each other and share data in limited, clearly defined ways. redesign and a quick change was made to make the Font Library more discoverable, with the need for more feedback as betaBetaA pre-release of software that is given out to a large group of users to trial under real conditions. Beta versions have gone through alpha testing in-house and are generally fairly close in look, feel and function to the final product; however, design changes often occur as part of the process. 1 lands.
BlockBlockBlock is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor. The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience. Bindings: after lots of discussions in slack, block bindings is moving forward to support custom fields and the ability to override blocks in synced patterns. The project as a whole is very open to feedback from extenders to see what can be added in the future.
If you are interested in taking on a topic from this list or know someone who would be a good person to writer about them, comment on the issue or in the #core-dev-blog channel.
