WordPress growth will deal with finishing the remaining tasks for Phase 2 (Customization), and can transfer on to start exploring Collaboration in Part 3.
“As we put together for the third part of the Gutenberg mission, we’re placing on our backend developer hats and dealing on the APIs that energy our workflows,” Haden Chomphosy stated in her latest Letter to WordPress.
“Releases throughout Part 3 will deal with the primary parts of collaborative person workflows. If that doesn’t make sense, consider built-in real-time collaboration, commenting choices in drafts, simpler shopping of publish revisions, and programmatic editorial and pre-launch checklists.”
The imaginative and prescient for the primary two phases was “blocks all over the place” and Haden Chomposy stated this can be up to date for Part 3 to be centered on the concept of “works with the best way you’re employed.”

Underneath the Group class, WordPress can be specializing in planning the Group Summit, which can be held at WordCamp US in 2023, contributor onboarding, bettering Polyglot instruments, establishing mentor applications, revamping WordPress.org designs, and holding tempo with studying content material. The mission can also be aiming to develop a canonical plugin program, which needs to be useful as some Efficiency workforce contributors not too long ago expressed that they don’t absolutely perceive what the method is for canonical plugins.
The Ecosystem class will deal with the WordPress Playground, an experimental mission that makes use of WebAssembly (WASM) to run WordPress in the browser without a PHP server with many helpful purposes for contributors.
WordPress contributors additionally prevailed upon Matt Mullenweg to think about having the mission commit a while to working via outdated tickets and fixing bugs. Mullenweg said he’s amenable to tackling one long-standing ticket (the type which are caught due to lacking choices or a number of potential options) every month in 2023.
