    Last week marked the end of our second cycle and the beginning of our sprint to get things done. We began by doing just that: last Friday, we merged the theme customizer into core. There’s still quite a bit to do and polish, so please keep that in mind. Development is being trac(k)ed at #19910.

    In the past week, we’ve introduced better JS APIs, working preview navigation (you can click URLs and it works, hooray), namespaced attributes (which will allow us to enable form submission within previews), and more. We also uncovered and fixed a fairly insane bug that stemmed from a low-level bug in Opera’s JS engine. Good times.

    Moving forward, the main goals are to integrate more setting types (headers, widgets), improve the refreshing process, polish the UI, and remove any vestigial plugin cruft. Dominik’s time will be limited over the next few weeks due to exams, so if any of this sounds exciting to you, please let me know.

      @koopersmith. I really like this idea and would love to contribute to it. I dont have much experience in the WordPress core code, but if you can guide me towards your roadmap, things to do or some bugs, i would love to contribute to whatever i can.

      Is it possible to try out the current (or soon to be current version) and create a video tutorial on what is coming into the next version of WordPress? Customization is so very important, and I look forward to checking out what you have created! My youtube channel: youtube.com/user/paaljoachim

    Yesterday marked the halfway point of our second cycle. We’re moving along at a steady clip. The main goal for the coming week is to tie up any loose ends and begin integrating the plugin into core. Until then, follow our progress at #19910 and in the plugin repo.

    We’ve made considerable progress in the past week. We completed a first pass for menu locations and have almost all of the elements we need for custom backgrounds (all that remains is the file upload dialog and fixing the color picker). We also added the ability to alter/choose a static front page within the customization (as decided in dev chat yesterday). Under the hood, we’ve made numerous improvements including working APIs (including rendering controls, previewing, and saving) for theme_mods and options, proper handling of multidimensional IDs, and a whole bunch of bug fixes.
