The release candidate for WordPress 4.3 is now available.
We’ve made more than 100 changes since releasing Beta 4 a week ago. RC means we think we’re done, but with millions of users and thousands of plugins and themes, it’s possible we’ve missed something. We hope to ship WordPress 4.3 on Tuesday, August 18, but we need your help to get there.
If you haven’t tested 4.3 yet, now is the time!
