Comment (by coolmann):

 Adam, this is great news. Our goal would be to implement a workflow where
 editors can create a new revision of an existing published post, and then
 be able to edit it and preview it (and allow other editors to preview it,
 if needed) without affecting what's currently live on the site. Then, once
 they ready to go live with the new version of that page, they just hit
 "Publish" on that Edit Revision screen and... voilà ;) The workaround we
 currently use is to "clone" a published post and its postmeta and then
 "merge" (overwrite) all the fields, when the editor is ready to publish
 the new version. If this was available in core, WordPress would be one
 step closer to become a full-fledged CMS.

 > coolman,
 > Check the latest patch on https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/20299 -
 it may help move towards a more complete solution here...  it allows
 previewing of the autosaved meta, allowing you to preview a post without
 publishing the post meta.
 > Any help testing or your feedback appreciated!
