Version 0.9.10 is available ๐ŸŽ‰

This is the first real step in providing site owners a better experience in operating a web oriented CMS.

For this release, the focus is on giving the site owner a choice on when to upgrade. The importance of this was exemplified in the WordPress 5.0.1 security focused release. People who wanted to stay on the 4.9.x release line longer until Gutenberg stabilized had to chose one of the following bad choices:

  • Upgrade to 5.0.1 although they do not want to use Gutenberg and have the hassle of installing plugins to disable it
  • Stay on 4.9.8 with publicly known security vulnerabilities

Although WordPress released 4.9.9 which solved the security issues on the 4.9.x release line, users did not get any indication in the admin UI that such an upgrade path is possible at all.

There are some other small changes, mostly revolving around deprecation of small obsolete features.

Beta 4 of the 0.9.9 release is ready for a test drive

Beta 4 is very likely to be the last test release before the full release of 0.9.9. The only thing left to do with it is, to document and test the migration path from WordPress installs.

There are two changes from Beta 3:

  • Compatibility with the upcoming PHP 7.3 version.
  • Fix for a minor bug which in a development environment caused JS errors, as there was an attempt to use non existing un-minified JS files.
