Description

Howdy,

I have just checked and came to know that version on the About page is not correct after the upgrade.

I have used Beta Tester Plugin and tried to update manually.

Have attached the screenshot as well.

Hi there, welcome back to WordPress Trac!

Could you clarify from which to which version you were upgrading, and which settings you were using for the Beta Tester plugin?

Hey @SergeyBiryukov

Thank you for the response.

I was testing the WP v5.8 beta version upgraded from WP v5.7.2 using the Beta tester plugin.

Where it says, "Step into WordPress 5.8." It should be "Step into WordPress 5.8"

Maybe in 5.8. the "." for the punctuation but is a bit odd and the expectation of the general user is something missing after that dot.

If you are not seeing any feasibility of this, you may proceed to Close this ticket :)

Ah, yes, thanks for the clarification. I misread the initial report as the "5.8" part not being correct here.

Yes, it looks like the dot is a part of the heading, though I agree it's not very typical to have punctuation in headings.

The current text is still for the 5.7 version as committed in [50418] / #52347.

For 5.8, the About page is being worked on in #52775 and a new text should be ready in a week or two. Let's continue the discussion there :)

Oh, sure @SergeyBiryukov

I will watch the #52775 for about page updates. Thanks!

I have opened another ticket as well. https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/47130
But I haven't got an answer to that. Could you help me escalate it?

Thank you. :)
