WPTavern: DesktopServer 3.8.4 Includes A Gift to the Community

WPTavern: DesktopServer 3.8.4 Includes A Gift to the Community

DesktopServer has released version 3.8.4 of its local development software. This version includes a lot of refactored code, setting the foundation for faster updates in the future along with design-time plugins.

One of the major changes in 3.8.4 is the use of the .dev.cc top level domain.

Due to the latest changes with the .dev Top Level Domain and the fact that many browsers now force SSL on anything with the .dev extension, DesktopServer will now use .dev.cc as its TLD extension. This is a legitimate top level domain owned by ServerPress, LLC and will ONLY be used for local development purposes.

Release Announcement Post

Marc Benzakein says the domain will work no matter which local development solution is being used and that it’s a gift to the community. Other domains such as .test will continue to work as expected.

Other improvements include speed optimizations for Windows installs, a Windows compatibility plugin to fix long filename problems when updating from third-party plugin repositories such as Easy Digital Downloads, and a WordPress 4.9.1 Blueprint.

If you use an Apple device with a Retina screen or Hi-DPI in Windows, you’ll likely appreciate the user-interface changes that are vastly improved on high resolution screens. Josh Eby does!

DesktopServer 3.8.4 also includes a number of enhancements for premium service customers. To view these and other notes related to the release, check out the announcement post.
