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.
