WordPress 4.5.1 Expected Early Next Week

WordPress 4.5 “Coleman” was released last week without too many issues. However, the WordPress development team recently identified two bugs that are prompting an immediate point release scheduled for next week.

The first is that TinyMCE toolbars and tabs are unresponsive in Chrome Version 50.0.2661.75 beta-m (64-bit). The second is that page templates with widgets are styled incorrectly. WordPress 4.5 added a singular class that many themes use, including Twenty Eleven, that breaks a site’s layout. After a lengthy discussion and testing, the decision was to revert the change.

WordPress 4.5.1 RC 1 is available and the core team wants as many people as possible to test the TinyMCE update and other bug fixes included in the release. If you think you’ve discovered a bug, you’re encouraged to report it in the Alpha/Beta section of the support forums.

    Same here… Well, the theme bug is boring, I must admit.

    My SOP, wait two weeks before updating to major WordPress release unless it’s a test site. Almost always works.

      I update manually (no auto-update) within 2-3 hours (6-9 hours if the update comes between midnight and 9am when I am sleeping).

    Anyone wondering: the “singular” class is a CSS Class Selector, not a PHP class :)

    Has there been any news on the buggy new link editor or a plugin to revert back to the older functionality? I know from comments from here and from other sites that I’m not the only one effected by this but so far it seems to be completely ignored by those working on core.
