Release: The Events Calendar 4.2.1 + premium add-ons

We’ve flipped the switch on our latest release and are stoked to announce that The Events Calendar 4.2.1 is now available for your updating pleasure.

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 first in that series for 4.2 and we nailed a lot of bugs in this one.

What were they? Let’s dig into the change logs.

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