WordPress 3.5 Release Candidate 3

December 19, 2012

Posted December 4, 2012 by Andrew Nacin. Filed under Development, Testing.
The third release candidate for WordPress 3.5 is now available. We’ve made a number of changes over the last week since RC2 that we can’t wait to get into your hands. Hope you’re ready to do some testing!

Final UI improvements for the new media manager, based on lots of great feedback.
Show more information about uploading errors when they occur.
When inserting an image into a post, don’t forget the alternative text.
Fixes for the new admin button styles.
Improvements for mobile devices, Internet Explorer, and right-to-left languages.
Fix cookies for subdomain installs when multisite is installed in a subdirectory.
Fix ms-files.php rewriting for very old multisite installs.
At this point, we only have a few minor issues left. If all goes well, you will see WordPress 3.5 very soon. If you run into any issues, please post to the Alpha/Beta area in the support forums.

If you’d like to know what to test, visit the About page ( → About in the toolbar) and check out the list of features. This is still development software, so your boss may get mad if you install this on a live site. To test WordPress 3.5, try the WordPress Beta Tester plugin (you’ll want “bleeding edge nightlies”). Or you can download the release candidate here (zip).
