November 15th Support Team Meeting Summary

General announcements

WordPress 5.0-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. 4 is currently out, if you can, please help test it to make sure we knock out any bugs whenever possible.

@macmanx put forth a call for reviews, so to speak, to encourage us (and others) to leave a Health Check review if they used it to resolve a problem. Negative reviews can be of-putting (although we’re happy to see that the reviews are read, which is pretty awesome), and negative ones weigh heavier than positive ones when users read them.
