PluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party Dependencies

Notes from today’s meeting:

When Plugin Dependencies landed, @costdev posted a comment on the ticket to ask if there are any bugs or enhancements, to open a new ticketticket Created for both bug reports and feature development on the bug tracker.. While this was partially influenced by the sheer size of the original ticket, the main aim was to make sure each issue could be tracked, discussed, investigated and patched more easily. This is a big feature, and we anticipated that increased testing could reveal some additional issues or ideas.

Progress since commit:

Please join the discussion on #60504 to help reach consensus on whether to support Must-Use plugins as dependencies and if so, how best to achieve it.

We’ll also continue working on the Dev Notedev note Each important change in WordPress Core is documented in a developers note, (usually called dev note). Good dev notes generally include a description of the change, the decision that led to this change, and a description of how developers are supposed to work with that change. Dev notes are published on Make/Core blog during the beta phase of WordPress release cycle. Publishing dev notes is particularly important when plugin/theme authors and WordPress developers need to be aware of those changes.In general, all dev notes are compiled into a Field Guide at the beginning of the release candidate phase. for Plugin Dependencies to get it ready for review by the Documentation Team ahead of RC1.

Rollback Auto-Update

Notes from today’s meeting:

@afragen reminded everyone that the PR for Rollback Auto-Update (#58281) would benefit from further testing.

Testing instructions can be found in this comment on the ticket.

@costdev proposed that we prepare a post for Make/CoreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. to outline the feature and draw more feedback and testing.
