It has been 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/. with more participants so far, and the Hosting team had its space reserved. More than 10 attendees actively participating led us to improve and expand the Handbook.

For starters, a more detailed description of what the team is and what it does has been added, and the approval processes have been improved.

The new Compatibility page was published and the Server Environment for WordPress 6.0 page has been updated (dropping the mcrypt ticket).

In addition, information about automatic updates have been included, and some research was done on WP_MEMORY_LIMIT, about which a proposal will be submitted to #core in the coming weeks.

I want to give special thanks to @mikeschroder for continuing to help the team and making work and life much easier for everyone. Moreover, thanks to everybody involved direct or passively because we “bothered” many of those who were there with doubts and proposals for improvement, and they gave us their best answers.

Related to the Hosting team

As part of the release of WordPress 6.0, the new Performance team has been working on several improvements to the coreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Team builds WordPress.. There are a few new additions to the WordPress CachingCache A cache is a component that stores data so that future requests for that data can be served faster; the data stored in a cache might be the result of an earlier computation or a copy of data stored elsewhere. APIAPI An Application Programming Interface (API) is a computing interface that defines interactions between multiple software intermediaries. It defines the kinds of calls or requests that can be made, how to make them, the data formats that should be used, the conventions to follow, etc..

As part of the 6.0 release of WordPress, the new performance team has been hard at work to improve the performance of term queries. There are many term queries on the average page load, and improving these, improves the performance of WordPress in general.

In WordPress 6.0, websites with more than 10,000 users will see improvements in handling users. Before changes, sites with more than 10,000 users would suffer from slow page loading time in the user and post list screens.

Changes in PHPPHP PHP (PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor) is a general-purpose scripting language especially suited to web development. PHP code is usually processed on a web server by a PHP interpreter.

At this time there are no changes to WordPress 6.0 compatibility with respect to PHP or MySQL/MariaDB, so WordPress 5.9 compatibility should remain the same as WordPress 6.0.

WordPress Hosting Team 2021 Summary

Happy 2022! We have just started the year and from the WordPress HostingHosting A web hosting service is a type of Internet hosting service that allows individuals and organizations to make their website accessible via the World Wide Web. Team we wanted to make a summary of some interesting points achieved throughout 2021.

The year started with the election of new representatives, @amykamala, @crixu, @jadonn, and @javiercasares, who have been leading the weekly meetings and supporting the Hosting team and other WordPress teams.

When the time change arrived (DST) at the beginning of the year, it was also definitively established that there will be no more changes in the meeting times even if there are changes in the DST, so the meetings are on Wednesdays at 09:00 UTC and 18:00 UTC.

In March we presented the idea of doing a global Meetup focused on hosting elements and everything related to the more technical, but non-developmental, elements of WordPress, the WordPress Hosting Live.

The result is we have the Meetup page, and our Youtube and Twitter channels.

Although the most worked project has been the definitive recommendation for all hostings to include, by default, the php-intl extension that will soon help to improve the quality of the code of WordPress itself regarding, above all, the internationalization of the project.

The Hosting Handbook has been updated with some updates to adapt the system requirements to WordPress, in addition to making several minor corrections.

And the PHPUnit Test Reporter is doing a lot of focus on upgrading to be compatible with PHP 8.0 and later versions.

And finally, I would like to thank all those who participate in Five for the Future and who have dedicated their time in 2021 to collaborate in the hosting team.

Thank you: @amykamala, @ashiquzzaman, @chaion07, @crixu, @danielbachhuber, @desrosj, @glueckpress, @hristo-sg, @jadonn, @javiercasares, @johnbillion, @Lagarder, @mehedi890, @mikeschroder, @pfefferle.

Software in the beta phase will generally have many more bugs in it than completed software, speed or performance issues, and may still cause crashes or data loss.
