WordPress 3.5 Release Candidate
WordPress is a free and open source blogging tool and a content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL. It has many features including a plug-in architecture and a template system. WordPress is used by over 16.7% of Alexa Internet’s “top 1 million” websites and as of August 2011 manages 22% of all new websites
The developers are forecasting the final WordPress 3.5 release will be in just two weeks. Though this particular RC is quite polished, it is still is not meant for live sites. However, please do try it on a test installation, especially if you are a plugin or theme developer who would rather not have a panic of bug reports on launch day if your product has any incompatibilities with WordPress 3.5.
The first release candidate for WordPress 3.5 is now available.
We hope to ship WordPress 3.5 in two weeks. But to do that, we need your help! If you haven’t tested 3.5 yet, there’s no time like the present. (The oft-repeated warning: Please, not on a live site, unless you’re adventurous.)
Think you’ve found a bug? Please post to the Alpha/Beta area in the support forums. If any known issues come up, you’ll be able to find them here. Developers, please test your plugins and themes, so that if there is a compatibility issue, we can figure it out before the final release.
If you’d like to know what to test, visit the About page ( ? About in the toolbar) and check out the list of features! Trust me, you want to try out media.
