Roadmap

After the 2.1 release, we decided to adopt a regular release schedule every 3-4 months with the features primarily driven by ideas voted on by our users. Here are the current planned releases, and links to their respective milestones in our issue tracker.

Any projected dates are for discussion and planning purposes, and will be firmed up as we get closer to release.

Version Planned
5.1 (Trac) 2019

The month prior to a release new features are frozen and the focus is entirely on ensuring the quality of the release by eliminating bugs and profiling the code for any performance issues.

Jazzers and Release Dates

WordPress core developers share a love of jazz music, and all our major releases are named in honor of jazz musicians we personally admire. Here’s a list of releases and the musicians they were named for. You can listen to a Last.fm station of all the musicians we named a release for.
