Hi folks, I hope you’re all okay out there. The year 2020 has been a hell of a ride for many of us, hopefully you all got through it without major damage.
For the FlatPress project, 2020 was kind of quiet. Sure, we made big steps towards FlatPress 1.2 (see the progress in the Changelog), but we didn’t manage to release it yet. Even the security fix I planned to release didn’t work out as expected, it may even not be released until after 1.2.
However, 2020 also was another year with strong community support. Thanks a lot for all the emails and suggestions, for your contributions on the wiki, your testing efforts and your pull requests on GitHub. Also, thank you very much for kindly supporting each other on the forums, it is always a real pleasure for me to see that.
I feel a little sorry about the slow release cycle. FlatPress 1.2 should’ve been released long ago to enable FlatPress for PHP 7.4 and PHP 8. I’ll do my best to get this done real soon. But at least, we consequently stick to our project philosophy: We do not run a feature race here ;)
I wish you all some quiet and peaceful holidays. Let’s take a few days off and gather fresh momentum for the new year. If all goes well, life may go back to some kind of normal one day.
All the best,
