December 14th Support Team Meeting Summary

General announcements

WordPress 4.9.2 is being planned for the end of January, but we make no promises on time until an official core post has been made with the final date.

WordPress 4.9.1

There’s not been any new issues reported against 4.9.1 that isn’t already covered in Trac tickets, most of them appear to be related to the new HTML validator before you can save code (which is a good thing, people are being made aware of their mistakes).

Checking in with international liaisons

The Russian, Swedish and Spanish communities said hi, none had any major issues to report on and we’re glad to see them around every week!

Open floor

A few items were discussed during open floor, as well as a “You’re all doing great work” note for all our lovely volunteers!

We’ve updated our pre-defined replies when troubleshooting things, making it easier for users to rule out plugin or theme issues without affecting site visitors using the handy Health Check plugin

Also for the first time (that I can recall at least) we’ve got an empty no-replies list on the international forums, which is a huge feat, so thank you to all our wonderful volunteers for achieving that!

Contributor tips
Do you use a theme or plugin often, and feel like helping out? Why not check their own dedicated support areas to see if you can help someone else?
