WordPress 3.5 Scope Proposal

July 23rd, 2012
WordPress, WordPress News

The scope for WordPress 3.5 has been proposed. Of note, the planned release date is December 5, with release candidates landing around November 14, and a feature freeze at the end of September.

WordPress 3.5 will also be introducing the new default Twenty Twelve theme, full support for Apple’s new super-high-definition Retina displays, and improved user experience and image handling.

Of course, WordPress 3.5 is still in the planning stages, so these are all subject to change at any time before the feature freeze in September.

    This is exciting news on the WordPress front and I am looking forward to seeing what else WP 3.5 has in store. I am wondering how the new update will work wonders with Apple’s new retina display. I imagine the plugin developers will also be releasing some great new products, too. Will you be writing more stories on these developments as the release date nears?

    Wow! I’m excited on how the Twenty twelve theme would look like that it would support “Apple’s new super-high-definition Retina displays”… I wish my MacBook would be realized before the feature freeze on September… yay… :)

    Wow! That’s awesome news and I am eagerly looking forward to the release of WordPress 3.5. I am pretty sure though that WP will add some more exciting features with this release.

    “full support for Apple’s new super-high-definition Retina displays”, this is interesting. How that works?, isn’t that what browsers do?

      I think it is!

      Isn’t Retina brand-new? Supporting it now while it’s hot off the market is moving slightly fast, isn’t it? WP should support Retina when it’s more mature IMHO.

    I didn’t feel great differences at any wordpress update, except of wordpress 3.3

    To be honest, i never pay attention to the changes as i upgrade from one version to another. I will start doing this on my next upgrade. Thanks for the post.

    WOW! It’d be exciting to use the new version of WordPress and even the new version twenty twelve theme on it.
