Starting with this release we’re changing our release strategy a bit. Instead of releasing every 2 weeks, we’re now releasing new features as soon as they’re through our QA process. This has meant that some weeks we’ve released two or three small updates to customer sites.
The final big change we made was to move our internal repositories off Google hosting to Github. We had experience intermittent issues with access to repositories via Google which meant sometimes a plugin would not be installed as expected on a site. Moving to Github has meant that plugins and themes are installed every time.
What’s Up Next
The next releases will focus on getting us ready for PHP 8 and revamping our Kubernetes setup so we can more effectively deal with spam form submissions. This update will come around December 15th.
