Description (last modified by dd32)

The 'beta' and 'rc' strings was added to WP_AUTO_UPDATE_CORE constant. Why was 'nightly' not added, too?

That’s a good question :slightly_smiling_face: The main reasoning I didn’t think of even adding it was because if you install a nightly, it stays on nightly forever, there’s no need to opt-in through the constant.

Beta/RC is more complicated as it’s running stable, but augmenting it with Beta/RCs.

https://core.trac.wordpress.org/changeset/49245/trunk/src/wp-includes/update.php could be added to also allow for development or branch-development for nightly/branch nightlies.

The whitelist for that parameter on the dotorg side is: [ 'beta', 'rc', 'stable', 'development', 'branch-development' ]


So I propose this to be implemented, at least 'development'. Reasons:

  1. Completeness
  2. Possibility to run a testing site, running latest development version ("nightly builds"), without the Beta Tester plugin.
