The third beta for WordPress 3.5 has just been released and the development team announced that a release candidate would soon follow. The stable version for WordPress 3.5 is scheduled to roll out in a few weeks.
But, until all is reliable in WordPress world, the developer is urging the users to test the plugins and themes against the current beta. Since the media management component has been rewritten, some of the plugins may not work as before. As such, the team is trying to address any incompatibility before the release of the stable version.
The list of modifications since the second beta has gone beyond 300 entries, which you can check out right here.
At the moment, work on the “Add Media” dialog has been completed and effort is being poured into fixing image inserting into the editor. jQuery UI 1.9.1, SimplePie 1.3.1 and TinyMCE 3.5.7 are also available.
