Hello there! It’s (past) time for a CoreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. Group update!
Apologies for the latency. Now that I’m no longer on the road, this should be a bit easier to keep up appropriately.
On the 3.7 Release:
- 3.7 was released! Then 3.7.1 was released!
- Bad news, there were some issues with 3.7.
- Good news, the automatic upgrades to 3.7.1 appear to be fairing well.
On the 3.8 Release:
- The initial merge planning meeting happened this Monday. If you missed it, you can catch the logs.
- As of this week, tomorrow, dev chats will transition to 3.8 talk, and the Wednesday dev chat has been shifted to 21:00 UTC to account for DST shifts.
- Members of the core team are buddying up with each of the separate teams, to work with them to aid in merging, or aiding in deciding what parts will reach core, and which will not.
- Widgets Area Chooser: @azaozz
- DASH: @markjaquith
- THX38: @nacin
- MP6: Likely @dd32; @iammattthomas also has temp commit for MP6 for 3.8 (Congrats!)
- TwentyFourteen: General core review.
- Omnisearch: Continued work before core (likely future release), with feedback sessions in regular chats.
