February 21st Support Team Meeting Summary

General anouncements

The Health Check plugin is getting a visual overhaul with a new UI and UX. With this comes a noticeable amount of strings, both changes and new ones. In light of this there’s a ticket up for going through the various strings and states for them.

Once things are ready, we’ll also have the Accessibility Team look over it, this is especially important as parts of it are planned for inclusion in core.

WordPress 5.1

It’s release day! And unless something happens we will see WordPress 5.1 be released today.

As always, this means we will be following the proceedings in our Release Day Checklist, most importantly that we will keep channel banter to a minimum until over the weekend. This is done so that any issues that arise can be communicated clearly without being lost behind emoji and the likes.

A small set of users may be affected by a JS error in 5.1 as noted in #46280, the Hotfix Plugin has been updated to address this issue for now.

Checking in with international liaisons

Members of the Russian, Italian, Swedish, Dutch, Urdu, Serbian, Brazilian and Greek communities were present for this weeks chat to let us know things are progressing well for them.
