WordPress 4.3 betaBeta A pre-release of software that is given out to a large group of users to trial under real conditions. Beta versions have gone through alpha testing in-house and are generally fairly close in look, feel and function to the final product; however, design changes often occur as part of the process. 2! Test all the things!

Beta 2 has dropped, please test and report any issues in the Alpha/Beta sub-forum. When someone posts to that sub-forum and a tracTrac Trac is the place where contributors create issues for bugs or feature requests much like GitHub. ticket is created then post the link to the trac ticket and mark the topic as “resolved”. Do not close the topic. For topics that should not be in the Alpha/Beta sub-forum then please move them where they need to go.

One change to be extra aware of is that there are changes to how the editor works in 4.3. Some users will have problems after the upgrade and for those users the solution will be to clear all of the caches that may be holding onto old versions of scripts. Not only the user’s browser cache but server side caches as well.

Otto wrote a good comment to that post and when the OMGWTFBBQ draft is posted then that will be high up on the troubleshooting steps.

If you are a forum moderator please keep an eye on the spam queue

It’s been well maintained these last few days, but please check on the spam queue from time to time. The other night I checked and there was a post in the queue for 11 hours. If it’s spam then delete it. If it’s not then release the post. Easy. 😉
