The release candidate for WordPress 4.6 is now available.
We’ve made a few refinements since releasing Beta 4 a week ago. RC means we think we’re done, but with millions of users and thousands of plugins and themes, it’s possible we’ve missed something. We hope to ship WordPress 4.6 on Tuesday, August 16, but we need your help to get there.
If you haven’t tested 4.6 yet, now is the time!
Developers, please test your plugins and themes against WordPress 4.6 and update your plugin’s Tested up to version in the readme to 4.6. If you find compatibility problems please be sure to post to the support forums so we can figure those out before the final release – we never want to break things.
Be sure to read the in-depth field guide, a post with all the developer-focused changes that take place under the hood.
