Description

Background: #43242

[47061] removed the suggestion for users to skip a minor update to keep their current translation. With the introduction of asynchronous translation updates in WordPress 3.7+, the suggestion is no longer relevant.

There's still some functionality to dismiss a core update, including:

  • "Hide this update" button on WordPress Updates screen.
  • dismissed option in get_core_updates().
  • Some functions:
    • dismissed_updates()
    • dismiss_core_update()
    • undismiss_core_update()

We should re-evaluate whether this functionality should be deprecated, as it goes against the project goals of keeping as many sites up-to-date as possible.

As this seems very outdated and should be deprecated, would the deprecation simply be a code removal or does some deprecated notice need to be issued.

Hi,

I think we should simply deprecate the function using _deprecated_function, remove "Hide this update" button on WordPress Updates screen and remove the dismissed option in get_core_updates() :)

I want to note that it’s ok to skip/ignore a localized update package if you already have installed the default package. That’s why this functionality exists and probably needs to remain for while.
This also only affects 2-3 locales which still have "complex" packages, meaning the package also contains locale specific plugins/files.
