I was hoping to play around with it this weekend – but as Andrew shared on the Core Blog the team has been working over-time to make things happen and the team is outright exhausted:
I badly wanted to release today, just as I did yesterday, and the day before. I want this thing kicked out to the curb as much as you want it running on your sites.
But the entire core team is exhausted, and we’ve made too many changes this week on too little sleep to risk dropping 3.5 without an adequate code freeze and a few days of quiet.
Sounds like a decent plan and heck, they’ve earned the weekend off (and then some) so I will patiently wait for the official release, set for this coming Monday, December 10th at 11:00am EST.
Get some rest guys – you deserve it!
So, what will you be doing this weekend as you prepare (or wait) for WP 3.5?
