FYI

Release Schedule

New versions of the plugin are released approximately every week (more or less). New features are added, tested, and released incrementally, instead of grouping them together in a major version release. When minor bugs fixes and/or code improvements are applied, new versions are also released. This release schedule keeps the code stable and reliable, at the cost of more frequent updates.

See release early, release often (RERO) software development philosophy on Wikipedia for more information on the benefits of smaller / more frequent releases.

Version Numbering

Version components: {major}.{minor}.{bugfix}[-{stage}.{level}]

  • {major} = Major structural code changes / re-writes or incompatible API changes.
  • {minor} = New functionality was added or improved in a backwards-compatible manner.
  • {bugfix} = Backwards-compatible bug fixes or small improvements.
  • {stage}.{level} = Pre-production release: dev < a (alpha) < b (beta) < rc (release candidate).

Free / Standard Version Repositories

Development Updates for Pro Version

Development, alpha, beta, and release candidate updates are available to WPSSO Core Pro version customers. Under the SSO > Update Manager settings page, you can select the "Development and Up" version filter (for example) for the WPSSO Core plugin and all its add-ons (to satisfy any version dependencies). Save the plugin settings, and click the "Check for Updates" button to fetch the latest / current WPSSO Core version information. When new development versions are available, they can be installed under the Dashboard > Updates page (like any other plugin update). You can also re-select the "Stable / Production" version filter at any time to re-install the last stable / production version of a plugin.
