Minor releases

WordPress 5.6.2. RC 1 now available – @desrosj 5.6.2 

  • This one is a very small release, and the majority of the bug testing could be done in 10-15 minutes.
  • Additional testing available, raise tracTrac An open source project by Edgewall Software that serves as a bug tracker and project management tool for WordPress. tickets if any issues found. Focus to continue on 5.7

Minor Releases often make improvements to existing features and functionality., which fixes a small handful of user-facing bugs that were finished and ready to go.
  • If it’s received well, we could potentially explore more frequent, smaller minor releases.
  • If you have any feedback around that, please feel free to share with @chanthaboune, @desrosj, or one of the Core team reps.

What’s new in GutenbergGutenberg The Gutenberg project is the new Editor Interface for WordPress.

Highlighted posts

Here are the latest 5.7 dev notes: 

Core editor front:

Full Site Editing:

  • work is going strong. Test, give feedback, ask friends to try it if they have never seen WP before and write down (with their consent of course) how they interact with the UIUI User interface, how does the UXUX User experience feels, etc.
  • @annezazu: The #fse-outreach-experiment needs you, no matter what you do with WordPress. The next call for testing will likely be this week, alongside a comprehensive update that follows the open submission for questions related to FSE.
  • If you want to test now, use this “How to Test” handbook page for FSE testing, and please share your feedback. (Though you don’t have to!)
  • Discussion: how to get more people sending feedback and asking questions, especially from people who do not follow the Core blogs.
    • @francina: raised questions on how to get more part, particularly students and meetups
    • @webcommsat: In Marketing, we are also helping non-tech users understand better what is happening on FSE and the benefits it will bring. This will help with future marcomms too. If anyone from a non tech background would like to add to the discussion session from this week, contact the Marketing Slack for the documents. We also work with community on newsletters and social to Meetups.
    • @timothyblynjacobs: Should we consider doing another Core dashboard 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./callout like was done for 5.0?
    • @nalininonstopnewsuk: request to let Marketing know please if this is planned at a future date to include in the schedule. 
    • @annezazu: Latest call for questions is closed, 47 questions received. There will be future rounds for open questions so we can continue to refine the general ‘reach’ going forward.
    • @lukecarbis: We’re starting to think about restarting meetups here in Australia, so maybe we could even do some in-person click-around testing, if there is a script.
    • Where is the best place to encourage outreach on this— #fse-outreach-experiment (not a feature pluginFeature Plugin A plugin that was created with the intention of eventually being proposed for inclusion in WordPress Core. See Features as Plugins. channel) or somewhere else? @annezazu suggested #core-editor channel on Slack. @Clorith suggested FSE-outreach channel to get testing and feedback on the feature before it lands in core.

Updates from component maintainers

Build/Test Tools update – Updates shared by @sergeybiryukov

Total duration was ~26 minutes; now it finishes in ~16 minutes. Thanks @johnbillion. Ticket #52548: Run Multisite tests in parallel during CI for more details.
  • Work keeps going to add missing @covers tags to PHPUnit tests, for better tracking of coder coverage. Ticket #39265: Missing @covers in the comment blocks in PHPUnit tests for more details.

@audrasjb  shared major news: @afragen has joined us as component maintainer

General component news:

@francina: Has started reaching out to component maintainers, both to gauge the situation of features/tickets for 5.8 and check how many are active. Those who aren’t will be moved to an emeriti status, like the one used for committers, as Josepha illustrated in the post Committers, Maintainers, and Emeriti

If you:

Open Floor 

@Eclev91: Raised ticket #43495: Use Semantic Versioning for releases and asked for it to be reopened. “I’ve reviewed the discussion that took place in Slack that prompted the ticket, which noted that because core is currently on a base-10 versioning system, new and ready-to-launch features like ServeHappy and GDPR were blocked behind Gutenberg development slated for 5.0 (the idea of a 4.10 to launch these features was unheard of and untested). I added my thoughts to the ticket outlining a variety of QOL improvements for both core development and core consumers (devs like myself who maintain many WP sites) that could be gained by moving to semantic versioning. I imagine folks with hosting companies working on automating updates would also have $.02 to add.” If anyone has feedback, please post it in the Trac ticket.

Testing instructions

  • @justinahinon: a WordPress testing instructions document was drafted at the contributor dayContributor Day Contributor Days are standalone days, frequently held before or after WordCamps but they can also happen at any time. They are events where people get together to work on various areas of https://make.wordpress.org/ There are many teams that people can participate in, each with a different focus. https://2017.us.wordcamp.org/contributor-day/ https://make.wordpress.org/support/handbook/getting-started/getting-started-at-a-contributor-day/. at Yoast (doc). Feedback about toning, phrasing, etc requested. Views on how it could work with the Core Handbook User Testing guide.
  • @jeffpaul: suggested a potential use could be in Make WordPress Test Handbook rather than the Core handbook .
  • @desrosj: this document is one that will be impossible to maintain over time. But it looks like each of the items you’ve detailed here so far look like great E2E test cases!
    • Some of these use cases could be used for user testing at meetups, or any other group of people that want to work on something together.
    • The steps change far too often release to release, and unless someone owns updating this document (or page) with each release, it will quickly become outdated. But if each of these are a test case, then they will fail when changes occur.
    • Not trying to discount having a document for testing at all! But feel this is far too detailed/intricate to maintain effectively for that purpose. 
    • @justinahinon: But if each of these are a test case, then they will fail when changes occur.

Growing Make Test Team

  • @francina: Interest in reviving the Test Team. It has been dormant for a while: no team reps, no chats.
  • During 5.6, @monikarao and others started weekly test scrubs.
  • @jeffpaul: queried whether weekly test scrubs were enough to consider people as leading the Test Team into action again. Worth encouraging.
  • Discussion: agreed.
  • @Desroj: Triagetriage The act of evaluating and sorting bug reports, in order to decide priority, severity, and other factors. team actually falls under the Test team’s umbrella now. Results of that team’s efforts are usually posted to each individual ticket as we go through them. But that is just one form of testing.
  • We have a group of dedicated people showing up every week and that is amazing. At least one person on the team scrubs tickets present on a nearly daily basis.
  • @nalininonstopnewsuk: we are planning a promote a team every month idea in marketing. If you decide to put a plea out for testing team, let us know to feature it in the schedule. Agreed.

Thanks to @nalininonstopnewsuk, @webcommsat. and @marybaum for the dev-notes this week.

Dev chat summary: January 21, 2021

The CoreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. team postponed the afternoon dev chat for 24 hours to get past the US presidential inauguration. @metalandcoffee, aka Ebonie Butler, led the meeting on this agenda.

Announcements and highlighted posts

@metalandcoffee brought the group’s attention to these items:

Ebonie also invited the group (and you, too, dear reader!) to stop by a 5.7 test scrub. There’s one every Friday at 13:30 UTC.

Releases

The Core team is busy with one minor and one 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. WordPress uses decimaling count for major release versions, so 2.8, 2.9, 3.0, and 3.1 are sequential and comparable in scope.

WordPress 5.6.1

5.6.1 has a squad and is deciding on a date; here are the tickets for the milestone.

WordPress 5.7

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 lands on February 2. Here are the tickets in the milestone.

Per @hellofromtonya, aka Tonya Mork, noted there are 66 open features and enhancements that need committing or punting by Beta 1. (Ed. note: Beta 1 imposes a feature freeze on the release. After that, commits are 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. fixes only. RC 1 imposes a string freeze, so Polyglots can finish translations before final release.)

Tonya had more to share about the milestone tickets. See the full discussion and consider pitching in on some tickets, especially, as @metalandcoffee pointed out, if there’s something you really want to see in the release.

Updates from component maintainers

@sergeybiryukov kicked off the updates with a general announcement that as of January 21, WordPress Core has more than 50,000 commits and thanked every past, present and future contributor.

Sergey also reported in for Polyglots, which added support for Austria to remove_accents() in #49967.

@audrasjb reported in that Menus has two tickets ready for commit. In Upgrade/Install, JB recognized @dd32, aka Dion Hulse, for his helpful insights on rollbacks.

In Design, @estelaris, aka Estela Rueda, asked for testing to review this Core color-change pull request, based on a discussion in the Design channel that was happening at the same time as devchat.

@xkon reported in from Privacy, saying he’s pretty sure they’ll be punting some tickets from 5.7 that need more iteration. The team also expects inputs from other teams, which happens a lot with privacy.

Agenda comments

jQuery UIUI User interface and #52163

Between standard reports and Open Floor, devchat takes up items people add to the comments on the Agenda post—and other items people specifically add.

That happened with a question @hellofromtonya had on ticketticket Created for both bug reports and feature development on the bug tracker. #52163, which is about updating jQuery UI and removing jQuery migrate. All of that is getting punted to 5.8, but at the moment there’s no firm timeline for the new jQuery UI release. Follow the discussion as it happened here.

Consolidating instructions for local dev environments

Across the WordPress Project you can find several sets of instructions that will walk you through setting up a local development environment for building WordPress sites, themes, and plugins; contributing to all of those things plus Core; and doing lots of different kinds of testing.

Those local-environment instructions vary widely in age, approach and tooling.

@paaljoachim has started a Meta ticket (as opposed to a normal ticket) to discuss consolidating those instructions and would very much like feedback, comments and people to brainstorm with.

So far, @desrosj and @hellofromtonya have offered help. But this is a big, complicated thing — so please pitch in!

WordPress Importers

@pento offers this proposal to modernize the WordPress Importers, complete with a slew of links.

As he told the group, “

There’s a lot to read, but I’d appreciate folks taking the time to go through it. :slightly_smiling_face:2:44Much of it is fairly sensible, but the last post in the series does contain a proposal for writing exporters for CMSes that don’t provide an export option, which is a departure from our usual approach.”

See the real-time discussion here.

Visual regressionregression A software bug that breaks or degrades something that previously worked. Regressions are often treated as critical bugs or blockers. Recent regressions may be given higher priorities. A "3.6 regression" would be a bug in 3.6 that worked as intended in 3.5. tests

@isabel_brison has a pull request that sets up visual regression testing in Core. The TracTrac An open source project by Edgewall Software that serves as a bug tracker and project management tool for WordPress. ticket is #49606.

@francina raised the point that some hosts are starting to do visual regression. See that discussion here.

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.-based navigation

@metalandcoffee: “Daniel Richards wanted to let everyone know that work on the block-based Navigation screen has picked up again, and there’s a new channel for [it] ” — #feature-navigation-block-editor.

Here’s the GitHub project.

Thoughts on browser versions?

@desrosj would like some feedback on #52331: Consider using more precise browser versions for `browserslist`.

Open Floor

@sergeybiryukov reminded the group that Beta and RC releases used to come with a haiku. He wrote one for the 50,000th commit and would like Core to restart the tradition.

@metalandcoffee volunteered to do a haiku for Beta 1 and closed the chat.

Updates from the Component Maintainers and Focus Leads

Component maintainers do really important work. More about components at https://make.wordpress.org/core/components/

  • Update from @sergey:
    • Build/Test Tools – These change the frequency of code coverage reporting. A change was made in [49931] to display a relatively accurate code coverage data at https://codecov.io/gh/WordPress/wordpress-develop on any given day of the week.
    • Some other changes include updating several NPM packages and simplifying Composer package caching
    • I18Ni18n Internationalization, or the act of writing and preparing code to be fully translatable into other languages. Also see localization. Often written with a lowercase i so it is not confused with a lowercase L or the numeral 1. Often an acquired skill., Date/Time, Permalinks: No major news this week.
  • Update from @sarahricker on 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)
    • several Accessibility Team members volunteered to stay up to date with accessibility needs for each component/focus
    • if your component doesn’t connect with an Accessibility member soon, let the team know.

  • Update from @Sergey on 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/ 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:
    • After almost a month since WordPress 5.6, for some reason the Gutenberg plugin still shows “Tested up to: 5.5.3” in the Plugin Directory and “Untested with your version of WordPress” when searching from a WordPress 5.6 adminadmin (and super admin), leading to search results that are not exactly great: https://cldup.com/nmU8Bq64U1.png
    • Note how every other plugin is listed as “compatible with your version of WordPress…”, but Gutenberg is “untested”.
    • Could we have an established process for updating the “Tested up to” version for Gutenberg?

@lukecarbis and @audrasjb led the weekly meetings of the WordPress CoreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. team, respectively at 05:00 UTC and 20:00 UTC.

Announcements

The WordPress 5.7 Development Cycle has been posted. The core team is targeting a final release date of March 9, 2021. More information available on the milestone page.

@hellofromtonya published the incoming bug scrubs schedule for 5.7.

The FSE (Full Site Editing) Outreach Program has its first call for Testers, specifically designed to explore the interaction between the two editing experiences (post vs. template editing) to make sure it’s clear when users are editing each. If you’d like to help test and provide feedback, please comment on the related post.

Another Week in Core blogpost was published. Most of the tickets of that timeline relate to Twenty Twenty-One and Twenty Nineteen bundled themes. Core team reps added a new props section to highlight contributors who made their very first contribution to WordPress Core.

A weekly Gutenberg update was also published on Make/Core.

Twenty Twenty-One and Twenty-Nineteen bundled themes recently had version updates. @desrosj published a recap on Make/Core. Indeed, bundled themes can iterate independently from Core releases. Of course, WP Core next point releaseMinor Release A set of releases or versions having the same minor version number may be collectively referred to as .x , for example version 5.2.x to refer to versions 5.2, 5.2.1, 5.2.3, and all other versions in the 5.2 (five dot two) branch of that software.

Upcoming WordPress releases

WordPress 5.7

Triagetriage The act of evaluating and sorting bug reports, in order to decide priority, severity, and other factors. Lead @hellofromtonya shared some insights:

  • We’ve had 4 early scrubs in Dec: with one in APAC and the other for EMEA/AMER
  • Participation has been light due to the year end and holidays
  • In January, we’ll shift focus to early, high priority, features, and enhancements

And also TracTrac An open source project by Edgewall Software that serves as a bug tracker and project management tool for WordPress. stats:

  • 200 tickets in the milestone
  • 33 closed tickets
  • 31 tickets marked early
  • 86 defects
  • 68 enhancements
  • 6 features
  • 18 tasks

200 tickets for a 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. WordPress uses decimaling count for major release versions, so 2.8, 2.9, 3.0, and 3.1 are sequential and comparable in scope. is quite light. @hellofromtonya will be looking for other opportunities as well as talking with component teams/maintainers to see if there are other tickets we might be able to land in the milestone. @sergeybiryukov pointed out that with 4 releases a year instead of the usual 3, it’s expected that the number of tickets in each could be a bit lower. 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 is coming quickly. So the quantity of tickets needs to be balanced with time and capacity.

@hellofromtonya shared a link to tickets marked as early + needs-testing. Everyone is invited to test them and provide feedback.

WordPress 5.6.1

There is currently 49 tickets in milestone 5.6.1. 23 are already closed as fixed, mostly related to Bundled themes.

As WP 5.6.1 may probably be released around mid-January, it would be nice to schedule few 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 next week. Please get in touch with @audrasjb if you want to run a scrub. @marybaum, @metalandcoffee and @hellofromtonya raised their hands during the chat. An agenda will be published by the beginning of January.

@noisysocks requested review on #51612, which aims to make the  render_block_data, pre_render_block and render_block_context filters run on nested blocks. The PR with the latest approach can be found here.

The 2000 UTC group discussed #51913 and #51918 which led into a general discussion about the level of PHPPHP The web scripting language in which WordPress is primarily architected. WordPress requires PHP 5.6.20 or higher 8 support in 5.6 and how to communicate it. @marybaum asked for clarity to ensure all the marketing messaging is accurate.

The current consensus is that coreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. is “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.-compatible”, which means 5.6 works on its own with PHP 8, but that any given site may not work due to the plugins and themes in use and that more defensive programming is needed in core.
