WordPress 3.1 Release around the Corner

This morning when I woke up I had a feeling that it’s about time to see some new wordpress releases soon.

Currently in the pipe is 3.0.5 with some minor security / hardening fixes and a major licensing fix.

And longer awaited naturally is 3.1 which is in beta-testing now for some months (Schedule) and awaited for release soon.

3.0.5 went into alpha yesterday as I saw then this morning. There was some traction on it over the last days. As not many may know, 3.0.5 is to be released just a second or so before 3.1.

WordPress 3.1 is already branched now since some days. Something that normally happens after release.

So probably you feel like me that there is something to be released soon. It’s Monday, and WordPress prefers to release in the beginning of the week. Probably wpdevel has some more updates (ah yes there are).

    Wasn’t that 3.1 branch just something that was used for demonstration purposes at WordCamp Phoenix?

    (Also, Nacin mentioned late last week that there would be an RC4 of 3.1 – which as of last night, still hadn’t hit.)

    But, I’m with you; I’m hoping we see 3.1 final very soon!

      Well actually I’m the wrong person to ask, but opening a branch that follows a common pattern just for demonstration purposes that seems to me would introduce too much work on it’s own.

      Since then all important changes are brought into three branches: 3.0, 3.1 and trunk. That’s too much work for a longer time.

      Have you some hint to the RC4 thing? That’s news to me. (Update: Only found this: Hope there’s no RC4 (7:22 AM Jan 22nd).)

      Yeah. We had hoped to get some patches committed against 3.2 in the Phoenix core developer camp. If we had had about 2 more hours, we probably would have, but the venue had a firm cutoff time, and it took a lot of time to get everyone up to speed on Trac and local dev environments. So until 3.1’s release, trunk and branches/3.1 will be identical, in case people SVN switched.

      We’ve branched before release before, I believe.
