I will shortly be updating the members area with the latest framework release, Version 8.5.
The new version continues on from the core changes made in 8.4 which includes many new features, admin area options and removal of depreciated WordPress functions.
Why the sudden code changes?
WordPress developers are picking up the pace releasing a lot of new WordPress security and functionality updates. Whilst our themes continue to support older WordPress versions, there is still a lot of theme code that needs maintaining to work with functions that WordPress are depreciating.
Users on version 8.3 and below..
We intend to continue our framework optimization squashing bugs along the way, once we have completely optimized the core framework and are happy that WordPress are not due to release any major surprises we will roll out an auto updater allow older theme versions to automatically update to the latest version.
PremiumPress Framework Version 9.0
We will be undergoing a lot of framework and website changes over the next few months updating our documentation, video tutorials and framework code. We hope that once this has been completed we can roll our Version 9.0 and allow all theme owners to update together to a new stable release.
Whilst this is no small task, we are confident that this approach will help ensure we provide the best possible service to our customers.
Finally a big thank you to everyone who has contribute with feedback and suggestions for the release of version 8.4/8.5, we are constantly updating and improving our WordPress themes and sincerely appreciate your support and patience during this process.
