Upgrade/install: Update from an update notice, Macnchrome

This explores flows from the update notice. This site was running 4.3 RC3 and the 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. tester pluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party when vizreced, so the update-core.php screen shows beta track ui.

The codex pages linked to from the update notice and upgrade-core.php are not at all compelling. They’re the opposite of that. 🙂 You don’t see anything compelling until you reach the About page after doing the upgrade.

update-core.php really needs the shiny updates treatment. Upgrading to the next releaseRelease A release is the distribution of the final version of an application. A software release may be either public or private and generally constitutes the initial or new generation of a new or upgraded application. A release is preceded by the distribution of alpha and then beta versions of the software. is a flowFlow Flow is the path of screens and interactions taken to accomplish a task. It’s an experience vector. Flow is also a feeling. It’s being unselfconscious and in the zone. Flow is what happens when difficulties are removed and you are freed to pursue an activity without forming intentions. You just do it.

Flow is the actual user experience, in many ways. If you like, you can think of flow as a really comprehensive set of user stories. When you think about user flow, you’re thinking about exactly how a user will perform the tasks allowed by your product.Flow and Context
that should be polished and compelling.

This entire process needs better localization.

A visual survey of site icon terminology

Site icons recently landed in trunk using the terminology “Site icon”. We didn’t go with “favicon”. Favicon is an under-the-hood term, one with a lot of tedious history. Instead, we want to package title, tagline, and icon together as site identity. And, we already have some history with site/blog icon. Here’s a quick visual surveyVisual survey A visual survey is a collection of screenshots for a like set of screens or interfaces, such as all list table screens or all toolbar incarnations across various devices. These screens are not presented in the context of a particular flow.https://make.wordpress.org/test/tag/visual-survey/.
