WordPress 4.3 development kicked off this week with release lead Konstantin Obenland at the helm. The main focus of this release will be to improve the experience of using WordPress on touch and small-screen devices. Contributors will also be renewing efforts to improve the Admin UI and the Network Admin UI, particularly as it relates to the experience on narrow screens and responsive list tables. Customizer Design and Architectural Improvements The customizer will also be getting some attention. Weston Ruter published a summary of the three areas he proposes tackling: Customizer Partial Refresh: This feature plugin aims to refresh parts of a Customizer preview instead of reloading the entire page when a setting changed without transport=postMessage. Customizer Transactions: This proposal is dependent on the Partial Refresh and involves re-architecting the customizer to make way for the possibility of feature plugins like scheduled settings, setting revisions, and drafted/pending settings. Customizer Concurrency/Locking: This proposal would add concurrency/locking support to prevent multiple users from overwriting each other’s changes while working in the customizer. Nick Halsey also
