WordPress “Billie” 4.3 has been released today. It has many great features including Site Icons, New Password System, Customizer Improvements and many other things including improvements like ‘Turning off comments on Page by Default’.
Last few months I’ve been spending time on WordPress Slack channels and so far engaged in a lot of conversations- suggested few correction on the new Handbook Docs for themes, pushed Site Icons feature priority with others, argued with Helen (Lead WP Dev) and Core Devs to giving ‘Turning off comments on Page by Default’ feature a priority, enticed Matt (WordPress Founder) to re-innovate WordPress Theme Directory and had so many great arguments and conversation with WordPress Org Theme-Review-Team for theme requirements and other improvements. The best part was the meeting with great minded people over there.
And, so far I was also able to keep me out of Props list- ;)
Looking forward for more in-depth contribution in 4.4 and beyond, hoping I’ll get into core patches and giving hands on other things along with many awesome people who making the WordPress greater with each release.
