Hi <<First Name>>—

Two quick things:

1. There's been a number of significant layoffs in the community recently. As such, we want to offer fellow WordPress professionals who have been affected by a layoff a courtesy Pro+ membership to Post Status. 

For those affected by recently WP layoffs, please BELONG2023 to get your membership. And if you have a colleague/friend affected, please welcome them here with that code privately. 

Additionally for those affected, we have a new #TALENT channel to share your resume, what you're looking for, etc. and for those hiring companies to connect with you. 

In a great career in WordPress, it's likely you'll be at multiple WP companies. 

But Post Status is always your professional home. 

2. Michelle, Mike and many other Post Status members attended what looks like a great WordCamp Asia last week.

Michelle has shared her thoughts here, but this photo says a lot.

WP 6.2 Beta 3 Released

WordPress 6.2 Beta 3 has been released following the first-ever WordCamp Asia in Bangkok, Thailand. This beta release is open for testing by developers and users who want to try out the new features before the official release of WordPress 6.2 later this year. With these updates, WordPress continues to improve its user experience and maintain its position as one of the most popular content management systems on the web. Read

Proposal to Update WP Release Cycle

Andrew Ozz posted a proposal on to update the WordPress Release Cycle.

  • The WordPress feature freeze is when the development of features and enhancements ends, and testing and bug fixing continues.
  • An exception to the feature freeze used to be made for features not ready in time for Beta 1, but recently this has become part of the standard release workflow.
  • Many users have already tested features and enhancements from Gutenberg, so there is no need to change task tickets before Beta 1.
  • It is proposed that a new ticket type should be introduced (e.g., “Gutenberg merge”), or the existing Gutenberg-merge keyword can be used to distinguish these tickets.

GoDaddy Announces Security Breach

GoDaddy discovered a security breach in early December 2022 following customer reports of their sites being redirected to random domains. Investigation revealed that attackers had access to the company’s network for multiple years, during which they installed malware and obtained source code.

Previously disclosed breaches in November 2021 and March 2020 are also linked to this multi-year campaign. The November 2021 incident led to a data breach affecting 1.2 million Managed WordPress customers who had their email addresses, WordPress Admin passwords, sFTP and database credentials, and SSL private keys exposed.

The March 2020 breach saw 28,000 customers affected after attackers used their web hosting account credentials to connect to their hosting account via SSH. GoDaddy is now working with external cybersecurity forensics experts and law enforcement agencies worldwide as part of an ongoing investigation into the root cause of the breach. Evidence has been found linking attackers to a broader campaign targeting other hosting companies internationally over the years, whose goal is to infect websites and servers with malware for phishing campaigns and other malicious activities.

What a week it’s been!

This week started with WordCamp Asia and is ending with a 30+ hour journey home. I’ve learned a few things over the past few weeks that are worth sharing:

  • The WordPress community remains optimistic about just about everything, and pulls together to provide for one another wherever and whenever they can.
  • Travel halfway around the world is not easy (especially as a disabled person).
  • Our community is incredibly generous.
  • Our community is like no other.

As I’ve said in my WordCamp Asia roundup, the accommodations made for me at WordCamp were amazing. (And yes, I showered.)

But, for me, the BEST part of WordCamp Asia was finally being able to be in the same room with people I’ve counted as friends for years! And taking photos with them, having a meal together, interviewing them, and sharing my heart in my talk.

I’m love with the WordPress community.
