Update about.php for 3.5. This [https://irclogs.wordpress.org/chanlog.php?channel=wordpress-

dev&day=2012-11-14&sort=asc#m490698 IRC conversation] still needs to be summarized, but mentions a number of things:

  • Media, including the new dialog, the new editor of attachment pages, ImageMagick (better image quality if your server supports it)
  • new oEmbed providers
  • HiDPI admin
  • plugin favorites
  • smoother/lighter experience (like removing options and cruft, TinyMCE looking sharp, button styles, etc.)
  • continued improved accessibility
  • color picker?

Under the hood:

  • meta query for WP_User_Query and WP_Comment_Query (I think those are both 3.5?)
  • multisite changes — specifically performance (switch_to_blog()) and caching sanity. subdirectory and ms-files are both for new networks, but could get a mention in some form depending on how we write it.
  • WP_Post is a good thing to mention, but primarily for performance reasons, so maybe not in name.
  • XML-RPC API additions (revisions, user management)
  • new and updated libraries (backbone, underscore, jq/jqui, tinymce)
  • maybe PHP 5.4 sanity?

johnbillion and lessbloat will be leading the charge here. Ideally, this is all done (in first draft form) by next week.
