The next major release of My Calendar is in beta, and I’d appreciate any testing of the beta possible! There are new major new features in this release – it’s focused primarily on updating to conform to the latest version of the WordPress PHP (Hypertext PreProcessing) ruleset. One of the key changes includes some significant changes to how dates and times are displayed – this should help resolve some problems relating to timezones, but definitely needs some significant testing to […]

WordPress 5.0 is currently scheduled for release on Thursday, December 6th. This date has changed several times already, but I believe that this date will actually happen. The new content editor, Gutenberg, will be included in the release. The user interface has been considered stable for all of 8 days.
