#35439 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Reported by: jrf's profile jrf Owned by: ocean90's profile ocean90
Milestone: 4.5 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Plugins Keywords: has-patch
Focuses: performance Cc:

With the patch:

Data obtained using the new Debug Bar Localization panel plugin.

Even though is_textdomain_loaded() has some issues, see #35442, I'm fine with the change. WP_Theme is doing the same already and I haven't heard of any issues.
