The work is never done, is it? With the recent release of 3.5 the team is taking a small break and coming back in January to start working towards 3.6. But that doesn’t mean that people can’t start bringing ideas to the table and submitting tickets.
Andrew Nacin has already put up some thoughts about the newer jQuery 1.9 Beta 1 to trunk:
The release cycle for WordPress 3.6 isn’t going to start until January, but we can of course start to drop in some early things before then. (This worked out nicely before the start of 3.5.)
With that in mind, I have added jQuery 1.9 Beta 1 to trunk. It comes with a migration plugin for deprecated/removed features, and this migration plugin issues warnings in the console so we may fix them.
Yes, we are likely to ship the migration plugin in 3.6 final; that’s why it exists. But for now, we should aim to fix anything not only outright broken in core, but also any warnings. (There are a lot of them.)
Pretty excited, as always, to see what the team eventually puts in the final release. Do you guys have any wish-list items that didn’t get incorporated into 3.5? What would they be?
