Hi Guys

Version 8.9.7 Released – maintenance release

We have released a new update (8.9.7) which resolves a few small coding conflicts when installing PremiumPress themes on hosting accounts running PHP 7.x+

PHP 7 was released earlier this month (May 9th 2017) and there are a few hosting companies who are now offering hosting accounts with PHP 7 installed.

Although the final build of PHP 7 was not expected until Nov 2017, some users are eager to get started with PHP 7 and therefore we’ve released this framework update now.

Already running 8.9.6?

If your already running 8.9.6 without any issues then chances are you’re not running a PHP 7 server and therefore you have nothing to worry about.

The only changes to the core framework in the new version are functions that conflicted with PHP 7 therefore if you’re running 8.9.6 without issue then you do not need to upgrade.

PHP 7 – PremiumPress 9.0+

Over the past few months we’ve been extremely busy working behind the scenes on a big framework update that we planned to release with the final release of PHP 7 in November, 2017.

PHP 7 has been release earlier than expected however we still plan to release version 9.0 in November 2017 which will include new framework features, designs and functionality.
