WordPress 2.3 went into feature freeze last night in preparation for its eventual release on September 24th. From now on we’re concentrating exclusively on testing and bug fixing. We are scheduled to release the first public beta of 2.3 this coming Monday, August 27th. We’ll be doing a new beta release every Monday and bug hunts every Wednesday. On September 17th we enter a hard freeze and release the first release candidate. A calendar of these events is available here.
I’ll be announcing the beta releases and bug hunts as they come up. If you have some time to spare, try out the betas and help get 2.3 ready for release.
