Version 2.0.0 is still in development. For now it is process of optimizing, code cleaning and testing. However, the released date has been already estabilished. It is 27th of February 2016. On this day the Kocuj Sitemap plugin in version 2.0.0 will be added to download in WordPress plugins repository and on this website.
As of today, adding of new features to version 2.0.0 of Kocuj Sitemap plugin has been completed. Currently the plugin is in the testing phase. The documentation is also creating. The release date of the plugin will be announced at a later date. The planned release time is January 2016.
There is too often the situation when old version of WordPress is used and no one performs updates. No update of WordPress makes it difficult for plugin developers (such as Kocuj Sitemap) to do technical support and backward compatibility. Therefore, I have decided that from version 2.0.0 of Kocuj Sitemap plugin only 2 versions of WordPress will be supported – the newest and previous. For example, when the latest WordPress version is 4.3, then versions 4.2 and 4.3 will be supported. I have to admit that an attempt to support very old versions of WordPress was one of the main reasons for the lack of any update for the Kocuj Sitemap plugin.
But what should do people with old versions of WordPress? The answer is simple – to update.
Please be aware that an outdated version of WordPress is nothing more but trouble. Sooner or later your website will get hacked. Therefore, WordPress update process should be performed as often as possible.
But why people do not update their WordPress installations? There are often the same few reasons. I will try to argue with them below.
There was released the new version of the plugin today – it’s version 1.3.1. This version only corrects some minor bugs which were only visible in WordPress in debug mode.
There was also checking if this plugin is working correcly in the newest WordPress version. This went perfectly.
From now on there will be always testing of Kocuj Sitemap plugin in the newest WordPress version. More information about this will be added shortly.
