WordPress 3.5 Release Candidate

Posted November 22, 2012 by Andrew Nacin. Filed under Development, Testing.

The first release candidate for WordPress 3.5 is now available.

We hope to ship WordPress 3.5 in two weeks. But to do that, we need your help! If you haven’t tested 3.5 yet, there’s no time like the present. (The oft-repeated warning: Please, not on a live site, unless you’re adventurous.)

Think you’ve found a bug? Please post to the Alpha/Beta area in the support forums. If any known issues come up, you’ll be able to find them here. Developers, please test your plugins and themes, so that if there is a compatibility issue, we can figure it out before the final release.

To test WordPress 3.5, try the WordPress Beta Tester plugin (you’ll want “bleeding edge nightlies”). Or you can download the release candidate here (zip).

If you’d like to know what to break test, visit the About page ( → About in the toolbar) and check out the list of features! Trust me, you want to try out media.

Three point five in two weeks time
