WPTavern: VersionPress 4.0 Tentatively Scheduled to Ship in September

WPTavern: VersionPress 4.0 Tentatively Scheduled to Ship in September

Nealy a year ago, VersionPress 3.0 was released. This version added new search capabilities, bulk undo, and a number of bug fixes. It was the first release since it became a free, open source project.

In a post on the project’s development blog, Borek Bernard, co-founder of VersionPress, describes what the team is focusing on for 4.0 which includes a tentative release schedule.

VersionPress 4.0 beta is planned to ship in June with 4.0-final scheduled to ship in September. In addition, the team will be labeling the project as a Developer Preview to better indicate its production-readiness.

“With every major release, you rightfully ask about the status of the project when it comes to production-readiness,” Bernard said. “The answer is ‘your mileage may vary’ but we feel we should better indicate that it’s only really intended for developers, currently. Therefore, we’ll be adding the ‘Developer Preview’ label for the project as a whole.”

VersionPress 4.0 beta 1 will support Jetpack and WooCommerce via plugin definitions. Updates to internal data structures, compatibility fixes with WordPress 4.7, and other improvements are also slated to be in 4.0.

Bernard also provides an outline of what to expect from the project in the near future. The team hopes to release Version 5.0 later this year or early next year with definitions for the most popular plugins. It will also be the first version rolled out on the project’s upcoming platform. Version 6.0 is expected a year after that.

To contribute to VersionPress, you can get in touch with the founders through Gitter or visit the project’s Github page where pull requests are welcomed.
