ClassicPress 1.0.0 Release Update


Thanks to careful testing and reporting from our users, we’ve become aware of several minor issues with last week’s 1.0.0-rc1 release.  None of these issues will affect the functionality of new or existing sites, but they are still worth fixing:

  • wp-content/languages/es_ES files were accidentally included in the release (details)
  • wp-content/plugins/classic-editor was accidentally included in the release (details)
  • We removed the “favorite plugins” feature linked to a account, but not the corresponding “favorite themes” feature (details)

There is also one other minor issue that was not new to 1.0.0-rc1:

  • .htaccess gets 2 sets of rewrite rules (WordPress and ClassicPress) after migration and re-saving permalinks (details)

In light of the above issues, we’ve decided to release version 1.0.0-rc2 (release candidate 2) with the fixes.  This release will happen on Wednesday, February 27, and we’ll also update our release procedures to prevent extra files from being unintentionally included in the future.

The new target date for the 1.0.0 final release is Tuesday, March 5.
