XML-RPC Core Update

I wanted to give the mobile devs an update on one of the two big XML-RPC features in coreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. for 3.5:

Last week we landed the user-related enhancements (#18428), and today I got some docs up on the codex:

The first two allow for retrieving information about arbitrary users, including some basic querying capabilities.

The latter two allow for reading and editing of the requesting user’s basic profile information. Email and password are not allowed to be edited for security reasons, but this will at least allow for management of the other fields from the mobile apps.

Last week also saw the removal of the UIUI UI is an acronym for User Interface - the layout of the page the user interacts with. Think ‘how are they doing that’ and less about what they are doing. option to disable XML-RPC. So starting in 3.5, XML-RPC will be enabled by default in WP.org sites, although devs have the ability to disable it using a filterFilter Filters are one of the two types of Hooks https://codex.wordpress.org/Plugin_API/Hooks. They provide a way for functions to modify data of other functions. They are the counterpart to Actions. Unlike Actions, filters are meant to work in an isolated manner, and should never have side effects such as affecting global variables and output..

The other major XML-RPC feature this release is revisionsRevisions The WordPress revisions system stores a record of each saved draft or published update. The revision system allows you to see what changes were made in each revision by dragging a slider (or using the Next/Previous buttons). The display indicates what has changed in each revision., which we can hopefully wrap up in the next couple of days.
