New Release: PeepSo & Gecko

Minor fixes in preparation for the WordPress 5.6 and PHP 8.

WordPress 5.6 and PHP 8

As always, our team has been testing PeepSo against the Release Candidates of the upcoming WordPress 5.6 (coming next week) and PHP 8 (released last week). Our first release to officially support both will be PeepSo, but the majority of the work is already shipped either in or some of the previous releases.

Since the majority of developers don’t test their software like we do, it’s generally a good idea to wait with WordPress and PHP upgrades until next year. For example, we have been unable to test our integrations, as the third parties are not ready yet.

Other improvements

We fixed a small bunch of visual bugs, mostly related to buttons, mobile / responsive layout and scaling of SVG images. As always, a full changelog can be found here.

I am a professional nerd with **over fifteen years of experience** in the field of Open Source web development. Before [PeepSo]( I was a contractor and have helped build successful businesses around the world, including USA, UK, Germany, Indonesia, and Malaysia. A couple of years leading up to founding PeepSo, I was involved with JomSocial - a social networking extension for Joomla. Stepping up from the role of a contractor to a business owner, I became [PeepSo]( founder and Chief Technology Officer. I strive to build beautiful, fast, and functional software that **empowers users to build their own digital tribes with full autonomy and freedom** often not available on mainstream social networking media. In 2022 I launched [EmeraldWP]( which acts as an umbrella for my other projects such as ListoWP, Widget Shortcode Pro, and MomentsWP.

PHP 8.0 brings many innovations, among them amazing syntax additions, API upgrades 🙂

@peepso_user_32829(Halsey Walsh) unfortunately many WP plugins barely work under PHP7, WordPress insists on backwards compatibility to long dead PHP 5.6, and it will be a long while before developers like us can safely use any PHP8 syntax.
