Description

WordPress.org sends emails to all plugin developers before each new major WordPress version release.

The email could be easily improved: it should provide direct links or methods to download and test the latest WordPress version. For example, we could just add this at the end of those emails :

"In order to ensure compatibility, you can download and beta test your plugin with the latest WordPress version here: https://make.wordpress.org/core/handbook/testing/beta-testing/

The email is actually pretty manual, it's not automated as such.
The Plugins team sets up the content each release and sends it out to plugin authors.

  • Resolution set to reported-upstream
  • Status changed from new to closed

We can make a note to put that in the next email.

FWIW, generally developers are aware of how to get beta (we got a grand total of one person asking this release). I'm tagging this to close because it's not really something meta can fix :)
