January 25th Support Team Meeting Summary

General announcements

We updated the Health Check plugin to v0.9 last night, primarily focusing on user experience, translation fixes bug-squatting.

WordPress 4.9.3-beta1 is out, please test if you can!

A reminder to avoid name-dropping in the #forums Slack room. We are in many ways the public face of WordPress, and perception is a fickle beast. It’s hard to properly convey intentions via text on the internet, and what we say can lose context or be misinterpreted. Let’s help each other to remember not to drop names/usernames in the channel moving forward.

WordPress 4.9.2

No new issues have arisen for 4.9.2 (thankfully, with 4.9.3 on the horizon).

Checking in with international liaisons

The Italian, Greek, Swedish, Portuguese, Russian, German and Hindi communities had representatives present providing feedback and input during this weeks meeting.
