Release: The Events Calendar 4.2.5, Event Tickets 4.2.5, and Premium Add-ons

We’re happy to announce a new release of The Events Calendar, Event Tickets, and associated premium add-ons.

As you may already know, we like to ship a series of maintenance releases en route to a larger, feature-rich release. This marks the fifth such release in that series for 4.2. Many bugs and tweaks were covered. To learn about the specific ones, let’s dig into the change logs!

The following plugins were updated to the following versions in this release:

The following plugins were not updated and remain at these versions:

  • Community Tickets 4.2.3
  • Filter Bar 4.2.2
  • Facebook 4.2
  • Advanced Post Manager 4.2.2

You can view all archived release notes here.

As always, we encourage you to use caution when updating plugins to the latest versions, just as you would for any other WordPress update. Backup your site files and database, and definitely test the updates in a development environment if possible.

We expect smooth sailing if you’re already running version 4.2 of any plugin, but better to be safe than sorry. This is especially true for anyone updating from version 4.1 or earlier, in which case we suggest reading over the 4.2 release notes in advance.
