Hey everyone!

I wanted to draw your attention to a post I published recently on Wptuts+, WordPress 3.5 Beta 1 Wants You!, about the recent release of WordPress 3.5 Beta 1.

I highly recommend anyone who develops themes or plugins for WordPress spin up an instance of the beta version and test it with your themes and plugins to see how things work.

3 Reasons why you should care

  1. Support – As people update to the latest version of WordPress, if they encounter issues with your product, they’re going to come knocking. Best to be ready with an update!
  2. Enhancements – Learning about new features WordPress are implementing, functions they’re deprecating, and other changes helps you be ahead of the game, adding support to your themes and plugins early.
  3. Getting Involved – WordPress is open source. If there are bugs in a new release of WordPress, that’s not good for anybody, and by being involved you can help ensure a smooth transition to the new version.

As I mentioned in the blog post linked above, if you do find a bug with WordPress 3.5 Beta 1, you can report it in the Alpha / Beta area of the WordPress.org support forums. If you’re comfortable filing a reproducible bug report, submit a ticket in Trac.

I’m looking forward to the new version of WordPress, which should be released on or around December 5th this year.

Is there a particular feature of the upcoming version that you’re most interested in?

If I am right, new version of WP should include improved media management, that is something I look forward.

I will test my plugin with a new version to check if everything is ok, thank you for mentioning.

The new media manager is already in the beta, though it’s very rough still. It’s looking really promising.

Great, will take a look.

Does anyone have any more details on this: WP_Query can now return posts in a specific order with the post__in parameter.

most features still WIP ? Very interested in the gallery builder but it doesn’t seem to be in trunk yet.

I wonder why my customers don’t read my documentation, and I did not properly read you post either .

Thank you for pointing it out. Valuable addition to the core.
