Less than an hour ago, WordPress 3.5 passed 1 million downloads! That’s not bad for an update which was released just a bit over two days ago. In fact, it’s yet another record for the popular blogging platform! Watch to the download counter, and you just might see it break 2 million soon. If you have not updated to WordPress 3.5 yet, why not help the download counter reach 2 million today? You can safely update from Dashboard -> Updates or download and update manually. Make sure that you check out the new features, stop by the master list of known issues if you run into trouble, and post to the support forums if your problem isn’t covered there.

WordPress 3.5 RC 6 has been released. The team is very close to releasing WordPress 3.5, but had to push it back another day with a sixth release candidate (they were very busy over the weekend) to fix how TinyMCE (the Visual editor tab) handles “ridiculous object and embed tags.” To sum it all up in one handy and concise Tweet, this: WordPress 3.5 now runs a custom TinyMCE schema tailored to the HTML5 living standard. We audited the whole spec to keep your content intact. — Daryl Koopersmith (@koop) December 10, 2012 So, if you’re a fan of using crazy embeds in your posts, particularly HTML5 bits, please test this RC. To test it, place your crazy embed in the Text editor tab, switch back to the Visual editor tab to make sure that it’s still there, switch back to the Text editor tab to make sure it isn’t […]

WordPress 3.5 RC 3 has been released. This RC is quite polished, and it looks like the final WordPress 3.5 release may be just a few days away judging by their previous timeline. The new Media interface has received a few more enhancements, uploading errors are now more specific, and various mobile device and Internet Explorer bugs have been fixed. This is most likely the last WordPress 3.5 RC before the final release hits, so if you’re plugin or theme developer who doesn’t like surprises on launch day, you should definitely test your products now. If you run into any bugs, please check the known and fixed issues first, report them if they have not already been reported, and visit the support forums if you need any help.
