In December 2022, PHP 8.2 was released. PHP 7.4 has reached the End Of Life stage and is no longer officially updated or supported, with PHP 8.0 only getting securing fixes, making PHP 8.1 and PHP 8.2 the only officially supported and updated releases.
A new update for GD Knowledge Base Pro, version 5.3, is here, mainly dealing with the PHP-related updates, the integration of the new Dev4Press Library 3.9, updated blocks build packages, and some minor bug fixes.
New version of the GD Content Tools Pro plugin brings a lot of updates and fixes, many related to PHP 8.x, some recently reported issues, changes related to the post type and taxonomy specifications, and updated libraries.
In the past few days, 8 plugins for bbPress have been updated, including 6 Pro plugins and 2 free plugins available on WordPress.org. This massive release effort covered many updates, PHP compatibility changes, and fixes.
GD bbPress Toolbox Pro 7.0 opens up a new chapter in the development of this plugin, with fully upgraded core code, new features, a new visual interface, performance improvements, updates, tweaks, and fixes.
After 3 Beta versions, GD bbPress Toolbox Pro 7.0 enters the Release Candidate stage, and the first RC version is now available. One more RC may be released later this week, but the Stable release is still on track for January 16.
DebugPress 2.1 is a minor plugin update, but it still includes some smaller, new features, very important updates, and several bug fixes, and it has been tested with the latest PHP 8.2 and WordPress 6.1.
In September, the GD bbPress Toolbox Pro plugin will get a brand new version, 7.0, which will also mark significant updates to the system requirements for all future updates to all Dev4Press plugins. This will reflect both PHP and WordPress requirements.
has been a while since the last major update for GD Rating System Pro, but, the plugin has been stable, not too many new feature requests were coming, and most of the work has been postponed for 2022. This 4.6 version is the first of a few major updates planned for this year.
ery once in a while, I am evaluating the development setup used to develop plugins, and make adjustments based on the latest versions of WordPress, PHP, MySQL, and other technologies important to the process.
Next major version of PHP, version 8.0, is scheduled for release later this month, and it represents a huge step from current PHP 7.x, but it also brings many breaking changes that would require changes to existing code to be able to run on new PHP.
