With just a few days before Community Summit, Contributor Day, and WordCamp US, many initiatives across the project are gearing up for time well-spent together.

Docs, Training, and several other teams are joining together to work on translations and localizations in a way that supports Gutenberg Phase 4 Multilingual.

The Design team is working on the new look for the admin dashboard. Meta team shares a post on the new Blocks page and seeks your feedback. They also have a post calling for working group participants to define the criteria for the Supporting Organizations page.

Concluding last week, the New Contributor Mentorship Program share the highlights and an oveview of our month together.

WordPress 6.3, Lionel, has been released. It's time to test out the details and footnotes blocks, give the WP_DEVELOPMENT_MODE a try, and check out the new Get Involved tab on the Welcome screen.

The WordPress Training team announces its first course cohort for Learn.WordPress.org. The course will cover Developing Your First WordPress Block, and offer real-time collaborative learning.

In December of 2021, Log4j vulnerability sparked governmental-level decision-making implications in the EU (Cyber Resiliency Act) and USA (SBOM). WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, and Typo3 have shared concerns regarding the EU CRA.

What do WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, and TYPO3 have in common? Leaders across these Content Management Systems have come together to express their concerns and seek dialogue with EU legislators regarding the proposed Cyber Resilience Act. They emphasize the vital role of Free and Open Source Software in fostering innovation, security, and economic prosperity.

We're just a few days away from August 8th's WordPress 6.3 release.

Two Gutenberg-related topics are worth consideration. First, Alex Stine shares how he sees WordPress using his screen reader. Secondly, consideration is underway to merge Gutenberg plugin releases into alpha releases.

No longer will you find Reusable Blocks. In WordPress 6.3, you'll now find Synched Patterns. Read on to learn why the name has been changed.

WordPress 6.3 will arrive on August 8, so there isn't much time left for testing compatibility. Whether you are a plugin or theme maintainer or managing clients' websites, now is the time to test the latest features. Mike Schroder shares their most anticipated feature with auto-rollbacks coming.

Collaborative editing is coming to WordPress, but what might that look like? A much-needed refresh of the Admin dashboard will also arrive as we expand Gutenberg from posts and pages through themes and now to additional parts of WordPress. Rather than voicing your opinions after such large overhauls ship, now is the time to read through the Phase 3 ideas and provide insights.

WordPress 6.3 is less than one month away. Get started testing now and tune in for the live product demo.

As we head into WordPress 6.4's kickoff, it's time to set our sights on Gutenberg Phase 3: Collaborative Editing. Your feedback to the ideas presented is important.

The first cohort of New Contributor Mentorship Program has also begun. There is clearly more interest than capacity to staff in this first group, which is a very encouraging sight.
