- Beta 1
- Feature plugin merge window
- Beta 1 will happen next Wednesday.
- One of the betas will be dropped to offset the beta 1 delay.
- Select 2 will be punted to 4.2 due to touch problems and upstream rewrite concerns.
- There will be an accessibility bug scrub on Friday. https://make.wordpress.org/accessibility/2014/09/17/wordpress-accessibility-ticket-priorities-for-4-1-early/
- @markjaquith and @avryl will make a patch to merge Focus.
- @johnbillion will make a patch to merge Session Manager.
I think Focus v2 is ready to be turned into a core patch and be merged in. Over the last few days we have been working on making it less “twitchy” and narrowing the circumstances under which focus mode is triggered, so we are sure the user is focused on composition when it happens, instead of transiently moving through the editor or absentmindedly clicking.
I think the session manager is ready with some minor UI tweaks (simplifications, really) and use of the geo IP API.
Yes the session management UI is in a similar position
I’m hoping to get that in patch form and ready to merge before the weekend
@helen @ericlewis Do you have time to look into the touch problems before Friday? I am very tempted to punt this if we can’t get this merged by early next week, and highly visible touch support problems will prevent it being merged
I think we can circle back Friday during the bug scrub and make a decision
i am having bad gut feelings myself.
I side with withholding it for just one release. The benefits of waiting (potentially better codebase, more room to test accessibility, etc) far outweigh the benefits of including now (almost certain rewrites in the very near future, for one)
I’d say cut it. It’s a minor improvement, not a make-or-break feature.
And with so many other things about to come in, it’s pulling resources in different directions a bit.
“just one release” – i’ve been tinkering with this since february.
Fair point, very fair point
but i am not worried about cutting it for 4.1. it is frustrating, but not worrisome.
Ok unless the situation with touch support changes in the next few days, we should consider this punted. I have also just been informed that there is a licensing issue which I was unaware of
Twenty Fifteen is steaming ahead
It’s looking good
@celloexpressions just did a great review
and doubled our ticket numbers :simple_smile:
Well, that was just as much as I could do in an hour :simple_smile: but it’s pretty good overall, no huge issues. I’m still thinking about the color schemes implementation
Not much to report on beyond the update here https://make.wordpress.org/core/2014/10/28/twenty-fifteen-chat-summary-october-28/

Twenty Fifteen Chat Summary October 28
Notes for our weekly chat about Twenty Fifteen: Twenty Fifteen continues to feel pretty robust — thanks to everyone who’s been testing the theme, reporting bugs, and contributing to patches with co…
We had some new template tags land yesterday, I started a ticket for the new `title-tag` support and will publish a post on that later today
Also working on adding support for the navigational template tags
Plugin and Theme Install
Lastly from me, the proposed updates to the plugin and theme install and update process haven’t had much traction lately, as I’ve already noted, due to @nacin @melchoyce @pento @avryl being busy on other things, but we have mockups and that group are going to plow through it starting this afternoon
So that is still scheduled for 4.1
Feature plugins need to be in the beta list. Only one of those discussed here is listed, Focus. /wp-admin/plugin-install.php?tab=beta
Does that page have a .org analog?
