WordPress 4.6 Beta 2 is now available!
This software is still in development, so we don’t recommend you run it on a production site. Consider setting up a test site just to play with the new version. To test WordPress 4.6, try the WordPress Beta Tester plugin (you’ll want “bleeding edge nightlies”). Or you can download the beta here (zip).
Notable changes since WordPress 4.6 Beta 1:
- Meta: The fallback authentication for the previous registration method has been restored. Also, retrieving registered metadata now works and non-core object types are no longer forcibly blocked. See #35658.
- REST API: The order of setting sanitization and validation has been reversed; validation now occurs prior to sanitization. Previously, the sanitization callback ran before the validation callback. See #37192.
- Customize: The order of setting sanitization and validation has been reversed; validation now occurs prior to sanitization. See #37247.
- HTTP API:
WP_Http::request()returns an array again. See #37097.
- Various bug fixes. We’ve made just over 50 changes in the last week.
