Most of the tickets that landed last week relate to Twenty Twenty-One and Twenty Nineteen bundled themes. A new version has been released for both themes, independently from the next WordPress 5.6.1 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. Minor Releases often make improvements to existing features and functionality.. Indeed, even if there is already a number of tickets slated in the related milestone, WordPress 5.6.1 is not planned at the moment since none of the tickets seem to be urgent or critical.

Except concerning bundled themes and… as expected, Trac has been fairly calm these days ❄
The WordPress 5.7 Alpha Cycle should regain its develop-test-commit pace after New Year’s Eve.

Ticketticket Created for both bug reports and feature development on the bug tracker. numbers are based on the Trac timeline for the period above. The following is a summary of commits, organized by component.
