Update "WordPress Versions" Support Page

Description

The version listing on https://wordpress.org/support/article/wordpress-versions/ has not been updated since 5.8.3. However, new version articles are present through https://wordpress.org/support/wordpress-version/version-6-0-3/.

Is there a process for keeping these in sync? Should it be added to the release steps? There are other places where version info is tracked, such as https://wordpress.org/download/releases/ (current) and https://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Versions (outdated by one release).

Thanks @ironprogrammer, I've updated both:

Added 5.9 & 6.0 releases and 3 patch releases for each branch back to 3.7 (4 for 3.9)

Is there a process for keeping these in sync? Should it be added to the release steps?

I think it would be great if it could be added to the release process if possible

Looks like the page needs an update again after the WordPress 6.1 release.

For future releases, I have added it to the post-release checklist.

  • Status changed from assigned to closed

Closing this as complete since it's in the checklist now.

If this comes up again, I'd suggest opening a new ticket about turning it into an automatically generated list.
