WordPress 6.1 will be the third major release of 2022. Following WordPress 6.0 Arturo, 6.1 will aim to refine those experiences found in Arturo and in 5.9 Joséphine [ref]. In preparation, this post includes target dates, features, and a call for the release’s squad.

This release cadence will consist of a long alpha and two short beta periods before the release candidate phase. According to the schedule proposed below and the Gutenberg release cadence, WordPress 6.1 would include up to Gutenberg 14.1 for a total of 11 Gutenberg releases, the same amount as WordPress 6.0 included.
