The Release Schedule

An overview of how we schedule plugin updates and how you can stay in the loop with what's coming.

The Release Process

The first thing to know about our releases is that they follow a regular schedule. Having a formal release schedule allows us to juggle the issues that fine folks like yourself report to us in the support forums with the new features we’re building and excited to get in your hands.

The result is a schedule in which there are three types of releases that ship regularly. While the specific dates of a release may vary, this is the general schedule we follow. This ensures that we are routinely working to resolve reported issues as soon as possible while keeping the ball moving on new features and allowing us to properly build, test, package and ship our releases.

Known issues are slotted into an upcoming maintenance release as we learn about them and we prioritize them at the beginning of each release cycle every other week.
