WordPress 4.9.1 beta

As mentioned earlier today, WordPress 4.9.1 has been scheduled for release tomorrow, November 29th, 20:00 UTC. Please have a read of that post for details of the fixes.

The beta package for 4.9.1 is now ready for testing. Please help us by testing this beta to ensure 4.9.1 fixes the reported issues and doesn’t introduce any new ones.

WordPress 4.9.1 scheduled for November 29th

WordPress 4.9 has been downloaded over 6 million times since its release two weeks ago.

A small number of bugs have been identified which are impactful enough that the core team has decided to release 4.9.1 with fixes for those issues. The release is scheduled for tomorrow, November 29th, 20:00 UTC. A beta release will be packaged later today and made available for testing.

The issues that have been fixed are:

  • #42573: File caching affecting users’ ability to use the plugin and theme file editors.
  • #42574: MediaElement upgrade causing JS errors when certain languages are in use.
  • #42579: Incorrect logic in extract_from_markers().
  • #42454: Unable to translate Codex URL in theme editor.
  • #42609: Theme editor cannot edit files when running on a Windows server.
  • #42628: flatten_dirlist() doesn’t play nice with folders with numeric names.
  • #42634: DB_HOST socket paths with colons not parsed correctly.
  • #42641: On multisite upgrade the wp_blog_versions table doesn’t get updated
  • #42673: Themes page throws console error when there is only one installed theme.

In addition, one fix for a bug introduced in WordPress 4.7 will be included in 4.9.1:

  • #42242: lang attribute in the admin area doesn’t reflect a user’s language setting.

Stay tuned for the announcement of a beta package.

Dev Chat Summary: November 22nd (4.9.1 week 1)

This post summarizes the dev chat meeting from November 22nd (agenda, Slack archive).

4.9 feedback + 4.9.1 planning

  • WordPress 4.9 was released last week, and so far 3 pressing issues have arisen that needs to be addressed in a timely manner:
    • #42573 (template file caching), #42574 (MEJS breaking things for some languages), and #42609 (file editing broken on Windows).
    • As we have a short timeline for this release, focusing on these 3 major issues for now, and planning a future point release for any other regressions appear to be the ideal way forward.
    • @johnbillion has volunteered to run the 4.9.1 release, backed by @sergeybiryukov, we're aiming to have 4.9.1-RC1 on Monday November 27th, with a tentative release date set for Tuesday November 28th.

Request for devchat lead next week

  • @sergeybiryukov has graciously volunteered to help with runnign next weeks Dev Chat, as many of us will be in transit for WordCamp US
