Andrew Nacin, WordPress’ release Leader announced that WordPress 3.5 will be released on December 5, 2012. This great news was discussed in the last dev chat session for WordPress 3.5. I hope you have upgraded to WordPress 3.4 because the next release will be very exciting. Fist off, lets start with what features the next version will have. As discused in the devchat, the list below is still at tentative scoping. It is still unsure if it will be included in the release or not.
