WordPress 3.5

WordPress 3.5 is here¬†and it’s awesome. Media’s lovely, hyphens in shortcodes now work, and switch_to_blog() is so fast, your dog will never catch it, unless your database is down, in which case you should try HyperDB.

Always nice to see your own name in the list of contributors, which makes 3.5 the fourth major version I contributed to with at least one patch. The feeling is good, but I hope to do much more for 3.6.

Have you contributed a patch that landed in 3.5? If not, head over to the Core Contributor Handbook to find out how you can help!
