WordPress 6.1 Release Candidate 3 (RC3) Now Available


Release candidate 3 is now available for testing! The general release of WordPress 6.1 will be released on November 1st, 2022 with many improvements and new features that we can’t wait to share in advance.

This RC3 release gives you one last chance before the official launch date this coming Tuesday morning at 10 am EST time – so please take some extra care during your evaluation period if possible because it really does help out everywhere else as well.

WordPress 6.1 is still in development and not ready to be installed on live websites. We recommend that you install WordPress 6.1 RC3 on a test server to play around with it and get a feel for the new version before it is released. There are three ways you can test WordPress 6.1 RC3:

Option 1: Install and activate the WordPress Beta Tester plugin (select the “Bleeding edge” channel and “Beta/RC Only” stream).

Option 2: Direct download the RC3 version (zip).

Option 3: Use the WP-CLI command:

wp core update –version=6.1-RC3
