June 1st Support Team Meeting Summary


WordPress 4.7.5

We have nothing new to add to the known issues for 4.7 this week.

This is the last week we’ll discuss 4.7. Next week will be all about 4.8.

WordPress 4.8 Release Candidate 1

WordPress 4.8 Release Candidate 1 is here! Please make sure that you’re testing via something like the Beta Tester plugin, Varying Vagrant Vagrants, or Chassis, and pay extra attention to the new Text widget and anything else involving TinyMCE.

If you have any other fun/easy beta testing methods to share, please do so in the comments below!

Community Summit Topic Proposals

After a good discussion, we have all agreed to submit these as the Support Team’s proposals for this year’s Community Summit:

  • Continue 2015’s discussion about how to make/keep the support community welcoming and open, while at the same time encouraging quality replies.
  • Go through the remaining items on the lists of known issues and requested enhancements. – (Meta assistance needed)
  • Create a common style guide (best practices) that can be used across all forum language.
