    Timeline for Twenty Twelve 1.0 — final testing window 

    During the dev chat yesterday (logs), it was determined that the timeline for Twenty Twelve’s release to the WordPress.org theme directory will be next week.

    That means if you have any bugs to report against Twenty Twelve, please do so now! It’s time for final reviews. Once 1.0 is released, it will be very tough for us to make style or code changes, as we will then need to avoid breaking child themes (both code wise, and stylistically).

    So, if you haven’t looked at Twenty Twelve yet, now’s the time. Here’s the demo site: http://twentytwelvedemo.wordpress.com. Also, if you’re using the Beta Tester plugin instead of a checkout from Subversion, you may not have Twenty Twelve installed and up to date. In that case, here’s a direct link to download a ZIP.

    (@westi, @dd32, we should adjust how beta theme installs are handled…)

    As Twenty Twelve is punted to 3.5, it is being removed from core. It can be found here for now, and will be brought back in for 3.5.

      I’m looking forward to its return, there looks to be a great deal of potential with the theme.

      Hope it will be released before Dec 21 ….

      I thought the plan was TwentyTwelve would be the headline feature of 3.4 that 3.3 lacked. Now that it won’t be, what will?

      It too bad to wait twenty twelve theme until the end of year 2012. It should be renamed as twenty thirteen because almost 2013 in that moment.
      So far, twenty twelve theme is far more better than toolbox theme.

        Agreed. 3.3 was the best release to call it Twenty Twelve and 3.4 would still be nice but 3.5 sounds a bit too late. On the other hand, assuming that 3.5 will be released by the end of the summer or beginning of the fall, it would be too early to call it Twenty Thirteen.

        Doesn’t really matter what it’s called though, it’s a great theme and I’m sure people will love it :)

    We’re digging in full bore to get things done by freeze. #19978 is the primary ticket.

    Tasks that need to happen by Wed Feb 29:

    • Finish the styling (Drew)
    • CSS file cleanup (Lance)
    • RTL stylesheet
    • Editor stylesheet

    The last big missing piece for styling is post formats.

    Update Wed Feb 29: see my comment below.

      Update: Twenty Twelve is not going to make the cut for 3.4.

      The design isn’t quite finished, and we risk a rushed, incomplete product by forcing it in.

      We’ll continue working on it so it’ll be ready at the start of the 3.5 development cycle, and do a longer report soon on why it was delayed so we can prevent it from happening again.

    Team Update: Twenty Twelve 

    We are still plugging away at theme styles and related code changes. See the task list on our last update for the exact things we’re working on and who’s working on what.

    I’ll keep that list updated as we continue to crank on the theme. You can also follow along in the main Trac ticket: #19978.

    One thing that came up this week is a minor revamp to the default comment markup, see #20088 for notes and a patch. If those changes are approved we can delete a big chunk of code from Twenty Twelve’s functions file.

    Team Update: Twenty Twelve 

    We are currently plugging away at fixing up missing styles around the new theme.

    r19915 brings in several of these style fixes and related template changes (see #19978).

    Next up is more of the same, including styling comments, handling the main navigation gracefully in small screens, styling all the default widgets, and styling the basic post formats (aside, link, image, quote).

    If anyone wants to help out a bit, we could use eyes on #19627 — the “default to static front page” behavior.

      Nacin and Jane both asked me to be a bit more open about what we’re actually working on.

      So… hands off the code for a few minutes to keep everyone in the loop.

      Here are the big, open tasks, what we’re doing right now.

      Current tasks

      There is a big blocker to moving any further than that list, and that is:


      We need to wait until after the main styles are “stable”, and all the CSS styling is in. Meaning Drew says he’s done styling all the basic theme elements.

      Then we can move on to the next big tasks:

      Big tasks, part 2

      Who’s doing what?

      Drew: Design concepts, CSS, images, minor HTML changes, a new eye on the well-worn pattern of blog design

      Lance: PHP code, enabling WP core features, testing, CSS cleanup, ensuring WP code standards on everything, i18n, approving any major departures from previous Twenty Something themes in terms of code, making sure this theme owns up to the awesome lineage of WP themes.

      Matt: Art direction and overall taste tester, meaning he has the final say on the design and functionality; testing it out for us in each stage and giving feedback on everything; sending us cool music to listen to while coding. :)

    Team Update: Twenty Twelve 

    We are the team formerly known as “Twenty Twelve Two”—now three strong with Drew Strojny joining up for the 3.4 release cycle as the theme designer. Welcome Drew!

    What we’re calling our “first cycle” ends today with Drew delivering us the first working prototype with the basic layout in place. Matt committed it with r19842. (See also #19978.)

    Consider this version 0.5

    This is not yet a fully working theme—we’ll be adding in more features and lots of missing styles over the next 3–4 weeks. Including post formats, comments, archives and page templates, more in-post styling, and a nav menu rework so the main content comes ahead of the navigation.

    Our goal for the next cylcle is to finish up all the missing visual styles from Drew, with Lance making relevant code changes as needed. Deliverable is a finished theme that everyone can start using and testing in earnest.

    Schedule notes

    1. Due to schedule conflicts we need to be going slowly over the next week or two, picking it up again in earnest Feb 20–Feb 29.
    2. Office hours will probably be on Mondays, I’ll post the actual times soon.

    Update: We’ll end our cycle on Feb 29th.
