Since the announcement of WordPress 3.6’s areas of focus, there has been an incredible amount of progress in just a short amount of time.

  • Menus have received a simplified UI by way of breaking elements up into two separate screens, a few extra hooks, and some accessibility tweaks.
  • Post Formats will be getting some UI tweaks around theme usage and expectations of data.
  • Editorial Flow will focus on how custom statuses relate to post types, the transition between statuses, and working with existing statuses.
  • Autosave will focus on how to safely lock a post and still allow user control, autosaving to the browser’s local storage, and offering better warnings for login expirations.
  • Revisions will focus on author attribution issues and improved usability.

If you aren’t already following along with the Make WordPress Core blog, I highly recommend doing so now, especially if you’re a plugin or theme developer, or just someone whose livelihood relies on WordPress in general. And, if any of the above looks like fun, why not get involved today?

    It’s a pity everybody is working in 3.6 while development of 3.5.1, that fixes a couple of really annoying bugs in 3.5, seems to have stalled

    I for one am glad they will be improving the menu UI. I recently did some work with my menus and it took quite awhile. It would be nice if you could copy and paste certain parts of a menu or a whole menu.

    I am impressed with all that went into 3.5. WP has really stepped up with improving WordPress and I look forward to the next release.

    I discovered WordPress about three months ago. I was in the process to deciding what to choose for a website: Drupal, Joomla or WordPress. And I must say that my choice was good: WordPress is a great tool !

    That being said, at that time the version was 3.4 and I had the chance to compare it with 3.5, there were some good improvements. So, I must say that I am impatient for the new version. especially the menus with that “two screens” functionality. Anyway, congrats for your job, guys!
