After months of effort, thousands of hours of development, and some pseudo-literal blood, sweat and tears – we’re proud to bring you WP eCommerce 3.8.14!
While I was privileged to take the lead on this release, it was an incredible effort by developers, QA teams, beta testers and support staff. I want to highlight a few people whose efforts were particularly notable in this release:
But that’s not all. We’ll go over numbers in just a second, but there were two other “MVPs” in this release. If you use UPS or USPS, you’ll no doubt notice notable performance improvements, fewer bugs and better extendibility for developers in those modules on this release. That is due to the incredibly diligent work of Jorge Aguayo, a phenomenally helpful developer who contributed a ton to this release. We’re super grateful for his continued contributions.
Lastly – the entire support staff at Instinct has been a huge help in the QA process throughout the entire release, but the especially exhaustive efforts of Mihai (you’ll know him as @misiculus on wordpress.org and GitHub) this release were absolutely invaluable. He found more bugs as we were developing than perhaps anyone else. Thanks, Mihai!
Some quick (and somewhat mind-bending) numbers on this release:
- We’ve added well over 50+ new actions and filters.
- There were 185 files changed.
- 21,125 insertions(+), 15,387 deletions(-)
- 249 Issues closed (That’s THREE TIMES more than any release on GitHub to date)
- 13 Contributors
- 1,084 Commits
- Touched approximately 65% of the codebase.
All that change, and we still aim to keep our promise of 100% backwards compatibility. Suffice to say – we’re ready for some sleep 🙂 Missed our RC release outlining some of the new features (not to mention a fancy video :))? Go check it out.
So please, backup your databases and websites, and take WP eCommerce 3.8.14 for a spin. We know you’ll be delighted.
