Today marks quite a release day here at Modern Tribe: we’ve pushed out The Events Calendar/Events Calendar PRO 2.0.7, and updates to both our Community Events (1.0.1) and Eventbrite Tickets (1.0.1) add-ons. Even though it’s just a monthly maintenance release, 2.0.7 includes — along with the basic bug fixes — a few new translation files and a couple neat features to tide you over until 2.1. It also is the first release t0 official support our soon-to-launch Facebook Events add-on.
On that note…you’re going to need 2.0.7 to run any and all of the add-ons released today. Make sure you update accordingly and that you don’t get the new add-on code if you aren’t yet ready to snag 2.0.7.
