We’re up to about 22.6 million downloads. We’ve been posting about 6.0 on the main WP social media accounts at least once, but sometimes 2x per week and these posts have been performing above-average with regards to engagement.
There are some folks working on the Gutenberg page for a refresh in messaging and design and the hope is to include information on how to leverage the Gutenberg code base for other projects, including providing examples. Dates for 6.1 and beyond are not set, but there is some work in coreCoreCore is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. and other teams happening on this topic.

Wolfram embeds promotion: The HelpHub article on the Wolfram embed was published last month. The collab with the Wolfram team was delayed a bit but hopefully we’ll be able to promote it on social soon.
@santanainniss onboarded 10 new contributors. Her group collaborated on some marketing tasks that did not require a lot of historic knowledge of the product or community. They came up with lots of great suggestions to improve onboarding and training.
@santanainniss along with 10 new contributors shared their impressikons on what is currently going on the official WordPress channels and started engaging with some of that content.
@jpantani hosted a group that went out on a field trip. They chatted with other contributors to find out what their favorite WordPress features were and how these impacted their lives. In order to group those in a helpful way, we also asked which user group described the respondents best. The same group was requested to ask around for websites and platforms that deserved a spot on the WordPress Showcase, so we now have some additional suggesgtions for that too.
A quick reminder that we have an open GitHub issue with details regarding how you can help share and amplify WordPress news on social media. This applies to the latest release and other announcements as well. You will also find a list of the primary WordPress social accounts there.
Overall, we continue seeing strong results from the WP6.0 release on social media. We had some excellent performances, but the biggest performances again came from our WP6.0 campaigns. We saw extremely high engagement and dialogue again with our followers. We earned over 1k (1,023) new subscribers, for a total of 2,042,403, across all of our channels, with many campaigns scoring high marks in some of our best examples throughout the week.
