WordPress 3.5 Beta 2

Posted October 13, 2012 by Andrew Nacin. Filed under Releases, Testing.

Two weeks after the first beta, WordPress 3.5 Beta 2 is now available for download and testing.

This is software still in development, so we don’t recommend that you run it on a production site. Set up a test site to play with the new version. To test WordPress 3.5, try the WordPress Beta Tester plugin (you’ll want “bleeding edge nightlies”). Or you can download the beta here (zip).

For more, check out the extensive Beta 1 blog post, which covers what’s new in version 3.5 and how you can help. What’s new since beta 1? I’m glad you asked:

  • New workflow for working with image galleries, including drag-and-drop reordering and quick caption editing.
  • New image editing API. (#6821)
  • New user interface for setting static front pages for the Reading Settings screen. (#16379)

As always, if you think you’ve found a bug, you can post to the Alpha/Beta area in the support forums. Or, if you’re comfortable writing a reproducible bug report, file one on the WordPress Trac. There, you can also find a list of known bugs and everything we’ve fixed so far. Happy testing!
