Hi dccs52, I’m real sorry about the issue we caused here. Our build process pulled in an unexpected dependency in the 1.6.0 version, which resulted in us requiring PHP 8.1 in the 1.6.1. version. We blocked < 8.1 as soon as we could. You will be able to stay on the 1.5.6 version for older PHP versions and we will look make sure the older version keeps running over time
Thanks Mark for the prompt update.
I’m still unclear though with 1.6.1 still requiring 8.1, will the plugin not auto update if 8.1 is not detected ?
apologies I can answer my own question above.
this is still not the way to go about things. This should have been communicated with a lead up (a dashboard or plugin notice). We could have got the guys to make sure all sites are up on 8.1 as we would have had a warning. Give us at least 3 months warning this is happening. I think that’s a reasonable and logical way to go about this. For all the good communication SMTP2GO does, this is the first time in a very long time I feel let down by a lack of process on this.
Again i’m sorry about the issues caused, we are putting more process in place to stop this from happening in the future. For now the solution is to stay on the 1.5.6 version
