5.4 Beta 3 to be released on February 25th

As mentioned, WordPress 5.4 Beta 2 was released on February 18th, 2020. 

Please help by testing the Beta and reporting any bugs on WordPress Trac (or the Gutenberg GitHub repository).

@audrasjb suggested it would be great to schedule one or two bugbug A bug is an error or unexpected result. Performance improvements, code optimization, and are considered enhancements, not defects.

Open tickets for 5.4 can be found here (in order of priority). The Bug Scrub schedule for 5.4 lists scheduled scrubs for anyone to join in. 

Status Report on the About Page – Content and Design

@karmatosed stated everything is lining up to start the About page earlier this release. There will also be a push to document this. @melchoyce and @elmastudio are leading the design charge on this with @marktimemedia riding along to observe. @marybaum added they’ve got chunks of the copy written and she promised to share it with major-release-squad.  

Dev Notes Status 

..and how to proceed to get them all published in time for RC1 and the Field Guide.

@audrasjb reports since the last dev chat, four new dev notes were published:

@audrasjb also reports to date, they have a dev notedev note Each important change in WordPress Core is documented in a developers note, (usually called dev note).

He is very confident they’ll have all dev notes published by the end of the month (during last week before RC1)

@jorgefilipecosta reports he is tracking the progress of the block editor related dev notes and requests that any feedback before the dev notes are published would be great as the content there was not yet reviewed and is just what the original people involved in a PR think the dev note should contain.

@johnbillion asks that if anyone sees changes going into coreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. that they think need a dev note, to leave a comment on the ticketticket Created for both bug reports and feature development on the bug tracker.. @audrasjb adds “if you think there are some important tickets that don’t have the `needs-dev-note` keyword, please get in touch with me”. @azaozz asks that you ensure the dev notes are really for developers and are concise and to the point and preferably with a code example of changed usage. @jorbin reminds us to remember the guidelines for posts and the need to have a peer review. 

@francina thinks having a separate page with guidelines on submitting dev notes would be helpful. @earnjam mentioned @desrosj would have a draft written up on the subject.

News From Components

Administration

@valentinbora reports 1 week after he took up Administration, 40+ tickets have been triaged with 2-3 moved to other components. Per the previous meeting’s discussion regarding the very existence of the Administration component, @valentinbora thinks it’s here to stay.

GutenbergGutenberg The 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/

@jeffpaul raised the issue of Gutenberg development overlapping existing Core components and how to best communicate with their respective maintainers/teams. @francina proposed a continued discussion about the cooperation between Components and Gutenberg out of the meeting.  

Widgets & Menus

@audrasjb noted 3 bug fixes with `commit` keyword and concerns about managing the transition and backward compatibility with tickets referring to current widgets/menus and new tickets referring to full site editing (FSE). 

@noisysocks recommends that maintainers of the widgets, customizerCustomizer Tool built into WordPress core that hooks into most modern themes. You can use it to preview and modify many of your site’s appearance settings. and editor components get involved and look at the relevant labels in the Gutenberg repository.

Once you’ve set that as your current stream, you’ll only be updated when the next beta or RC (or official) is released rather than the nightlies. 

One advantage of this new feature is that you’ll be able to update to beta or RC packages right in the Dashboard (Dashboard > Update) as soon as the packages are built during the release parties if you’re not comfortable using wp-cliWP-CLI WP-CLI is the Command Line Interface for WordPress, used to do administrative and development tasks in a programmatic way. The project page is http://wp-cli.org/ https://make.wordpress.org/cli/.  Hopefully, this will increase the pool of testers during the release parties.

As the meeting was over time, the remaining two topics from today’s agenda were not started. 

Action Items

These items were discovered within the content as stated action items.

  • @francina to add the bug scrubs to the meetings page (like she did for 5.3)
  • @francina to add “creating a separate page with dev note guidelines, adding comments to a ticket” to her desiderata. Check with @desrosj who might have a draft of a page with details about how to write a good dev note.
  • @audrasjb and @welcher should look at Widgets/Menus issues/PR on Gutenberg
  • @noisysocks to add a ‘call for volunteers’ to the next core editor chat to implement proactive communications from Gutenberg to those component maintainers to help find ways to work together.
  • @jeffpaul suggests we call out notice to the new WordPress Beta Tester plugin in the Beta 3 blogblog (versus network, site) post (and future posts as well) so folks looking to help test have a starting place. 
  • @clorith wants to chat about how to move more things into a ReactReact React is a JavaScript library that makes it easy to reason about, construct, and maintain stateless and stateful user interfaces. https://reactjs.org/. world and how to do it outside of Gutenberg.
  • @noisysocks to “put something up” on Make/Core to continue the conversation about cooperation between Components and Gutenberg (i.e. Cross Teams Collaboration).

Dev Chat summary – January 22, 2020

@francina led our discussion from this agenda.

Announcements

The chat marked week 2 of th 5.4 release cycle.

@francina announced that @davidb has posted this bug-scrub schedule, which also lists regular design and editor triages. Remember, you can get serious props by hosting a scrub of your own — and you can pick the tickets to suit your own interests!

She also confirmed the schedule and release squad.

Schedule:

  • BetaBeta A 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: 11 February 2020 (4 weeks from kickoff)
  • Release Candidaterelease candidate One of the final stages in the version release cycle, this version signals the potential to be a final release to the public. Also see alpha (beta). 1: 03 March 2020 (3 weeks from beta 1)
  • General Release: 31 March 2020 (3 weeks from release candidate 1)

Squad:

Third, @francina referred the group to @jeffpaul’s 5.4 release-cycle page and then, comparing herself to a DJ at a wedding, opened the floor to other announcements.

That prompted @karmatosed to link a proposed list of design priorities for 5.4.

Answering the question from @francina, @karmatosed asked the group (plus you and me, dear reader) to comment on the post with our feedback. Priorities are open, as long as we keep in mind what we can finish by February 11 — Beta 1.

(Ed. note: If this is your first major releasemajor release A release, identified by the first two numbers (3.6), which is the focus of a full release cycle and feature development.

We call this a feature freeze.

After feature freeze, only bugs are dealt with, with regressions (adverse changes from the previous version) being the highest priority. fixes and patches. There’s also a string freeze at RC1.)

Highlighted Posts

@francina turned the group’s attention to the Release Model Working Group post that sets the kickoff date for January 29.

Again, if you’ve got thoughts on how to organize the work, or things you’d like to see happen, please comment on the post.

See more of the conversation here.

@karmatosed made one final point, asking if the working group could alternate meeting times to include the whole globe, and devchat attendees readily agreed.

Components Check-in

@ianbelanger asked for help testing and submitting patches for 19 bundled-theme tickets and 39 Twenty Twenty tickets, so at lease some of them can get into 5.4.

@azaozz reported fast work on wp-lazy-loading and asked for more eyes/reviews/suggestions/testing.

https://github.com/WordPress/wp-lazy-loading

@johnbillion and @clorith reported steady progress on tooling and Site Health, respectively. @xkon reported some small fixes and enhancements in privacy. See the transcript.

@jorgefilipecosta announced the release of Gutenberg 7.3, “featuring a very significant performance enhancementenhancement Enhancements are simple improvements to WordPress, such as the addition of a hook, a new feature, or an improvement to an existing feature..” (I think he means it’s faster. 😜)

Here’s the post:

https://make.wordpress.org/core/2020/01/22/whats-new-in-gutenberg-22-january/

He touted the navigation blockBlock Block 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. as the big feature for 5.4 and pointed us all (you too, dear reader) to this board for tracking the status for that block.

Finally, @audrasjb brought up Plugins and Themes auto-updates, tickets #49199 and #48850. He pointed out we still need feedback from a variety of core committers and component maintainers if we’re going to get these into 5.4.

After a resounding chorus of emoji support for @audrasjb‘s points, @francina called Open Floor.

Nobody came forward, so devchat ended eight minutes early.

Announcements / WordPress 5.4

At the moment there are 288 tickets milestoned for 5.4.

@francina is working on putting together a release squad. Some roles are already confirmed:

  • @matt is the release leadRelease Lead The community member ultimately responsible for the Release.
  • @francina and @davidbaumwald will continue as release co-leads
  • @karmatosed will coordinate the design effort
  • @sergeybiryukov will be the coreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. tech focus lead

The whole team should be assembled by the end of the week. There is a fewer roles than in 5.3, because it’s a shorter release. The first BetaBeta A 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. release is in 3 weeks from now.

@davidbaumwald expects to release the bugbug A bug is an error or unexpected result. Performance improvements, code optimization, and are considered enhancements, not defects. After feature freeze, only bugs are dealt with, with regressions (adverse changes from the previous version) being the highest priority. scrubs schedule by the end of the week.

@karmatosed added that Core design triages (on Mondays) for a few weeks can also focus on 5.4 to boost things.

@audrasjb noted that depending on the number of accessibilityAccessibility Accessibility (commonly shortened to a11y) refers to the design of products, devices, services, or environments for people with disabilities. The concept of accessible design ensures both “direct access” (i.e. unassisted) and “indirect access” meaning compatibility with a person’s assistive technology (for example, computer screen readers). (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accessibility) related tickets, the Accessibility Team can organize some extra accessibility focused bug scrubs. He will check the milestone to see if there is a need for more accessibility bug scrubs.

As @azaozz stated, hopefully component maintainers will take bigger and bigger part in “driving” 5.4, and releases in general.

@pbiron asked if there is a specific focus for 5.4. @francina answered that in general, 2020 is going to focus on one big goal: full site editing with GutenbergGutenberg The 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/. @dingo_d noted that it would need some coordination with the Theme Review Team.

@paragoninitiativeenterprises noted that #49200 needs feedback from anyone interested in WordPress security, or who develops plugins/themes.

@audrasjb is working on two tickets related to Themes and Plugins auto-updates: #49199 and #48850. This is one of the 9 projects for 2019-2020. The design team already provided some helpful feedback. These tickets are now waiting for technical review so they could hopefully land in the next couple of releases.

@marybaum noted her availability for copy review on 5.4 features.

@azaozz reported the Media team will release a feature plugin for lazy loading, so it can be tested well before adding to core. The 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 should be available in a couple of days.

@francina mentioned that development on 5.4 should have started the day 5.4 was branched, back in October. In fact, many people wait for the kickoff to start working. With Beta release scheduled in 3 weeks, it’s not really the time to add not fully ready features to the scope. However, WordPress 5.5 agenda is already known, so there is no need to rush things.

@azaozz and @francina pointed out that as soon as a release’s code is moved to a branchbranch A directory in Subversion. WordPress uses branches to store the latest development code for each major release (3.9, 4.0, etc.). Branches are then updated with code for any minor releases of that branch. Sometimes, a major version of WordPress and its minor versions are collectively referred to as a "branch", such as "the 4.0 branch"., trunktrunk A directory in Subversion containing the latest development code in preparation for the next major release cycle. If you are running "trunk", then you are on the latest revision. is back in business for the next release.

@xkon noticed that the “Current Release” widgetWidget A WordPress Widget is a small block that performs a specific function. You can add these widgets in sidebars also known as widget-ready areas on your web page. WordPress widgets were originally created to provide a simple and easy-to-use way of giving design and structure control of the WordPress theme to the user. on Make/Core might be confusing for newcomers as it’s still indicating 5.3 as the current release in progress.

Calls from component maintainers

Media: @azaozz is looking at couple of small enhancements for the uploader changes from 5.3, specifically adding a link in the UIUI User interface to the original image (if it was scaled), and looking at some of the edge cases when creating image sub-sizes, file size for large PNGs, etc.

Widgets & Menus: @audrasjb will coordinate with @welcher to identify priorities for an eventual specific bug scrub.

Build tools: @johnbillion is going to look at getting several of the Composer related tickets into 5.4 (like using Composer for external libraries and phpunit). @desrosj and @johnbillion to synchronize their work at some point as @desrosj is working on backporting the local Docker environment.

Comments: @imath committed to look at each ticketticket Created for both bug reports and feature development on the bug tracker. involving comments in 5.4.

Open Floor

Some new contributors asked about how to start with core contribution. Worth noting the next New Contributor Meeting is scheduled for next Wednesday at 20:00 UTC in #core SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/. channel. This is a great opportunity to ask for help or to learn how to contribute to WordPress Core.

Upcoming Release – WordPress 5.4

@francina reminded the main feature of 2020 will be full site editing. All component maintainers received a pingPing The act of sending a very small amount of data to an end point. Ping is used in computer science to illicit a response from a target server to test it’s connection. Ping is also a term used by Slack users to @ someone or send them a direct message (DM). Users might say something along the lines of “Ping me when the meeting starts.” before Christmas to put together a scope for WordPress 5.4. An open call for tickets was also published on Make/CoreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress.. While @francina noted there were mostly bugfixes and not so many new features, @audrasjb raised ticketticket Created for both bug reports and feature development on the bug tracker. #48850 from the comments of this post. This ticket is related to automatic updates for plugins (with manual opt-in), which is one of the 9 projects for 2019-2020.

@azaozz noted that the media component team plan to continue with image post-processing. It looks like it will need couple of small UIUI User interface changes/enhancements.

@audrasjb added the accessibilityAccessibility Accessibility (commonly shortened to a11y) refers to the design of products, devices, services, or environments for people with disabilities. The concept of accessible design ensures both “direct access” (i.e. unassisted) and “indirect access” meaning compatibility with a person’s assistive technology (for example, computer screen readers).

Highlighted posts

@francina noted that a lot of volunteers signed up to the release model working group. @francina will write a recap post on Make/Core.

Worth noting @azaozz published a 5.3 release cycle post-mortem.

Components check-in

Comments: @imath is working on #35214. Feedback welcome.

Core privacy: @xkon said the privacy team won’t have any specific focuses for 5.4, only bugfixing & enhancements on existing parts. Some of them need backward compatibility review, especially #44038 and #44176. Both tickets have a patchpatch A special text file that describes changes to code, by identifying the files and lines which are added, removed, and altered. It may also be referred to as a diff.

Media: @azaozz is experimenting with #44427. Seems a very worthwhile enhancementenhancement Enhancements are simple improvements to WordPress, such as the addition of a hook, a new feature, or an improvement to an existing feature. for 5.4.

Open floor

In the agenda comments, @justinahinon pointed out some editing needed in the roadmap, and highlighted reactions of the community concerning handling of big media on WP 5.3. @azaozz noted most comments are about “missing” the original image in some way. The initial plan was to have a link to it in the user interface. It should be added in 5.4. Another enhancement for the UI would/may be to show when an image is missing some of the sub-sizes and have a way to create them. There are plugins that handle this, but may be time to have it in core. There are couple of pre-existing edge-cases that need fixing too. Most notably increase of the file size for indexed PNGs when resized to smaller dimensions.

@timothyblynjacobs shared #47192 as a possible 5.4 feature. It’d bring a pretty often requested feature to Recovery Mode. It would need design and copy input as well as a security review from people familiar with the intricacies of the Users/Capabilities APIAPI An 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..
