New Release: PeepSo & Gecko 3.1.2.0

Login security & registration flow improvements, further development of Name Based Avatars and many improvements and fixes.

What’s new?

Login security & registration flow

Admins can now disable the password reset delay, over some concerns that users sharing the same IP might delay each other from resetting passwords. We recommend not using this option unless absolutely necessary, to avoid brute force attacks.

You can now decide to redirect all WordPress registration requests to PeepSo registration, in case you need the WordPress registration to be enabled for other plugins, but actually do not wish any registrations via the WordPress default form.

Early Access: Name Based Avatars

The experimental Name Based Avatars have been improved with an instant admin preview of the generated avatars. It makes it much easier to see what the avatars will look like without saving the configuration and previewing it in the front-end. We also fixed an issue where the SVG avatars would display out of scale in e-mail notifications.

Other improvements & fixes

This release ships numerous small improvements. We further improved photo lightbox on mobile, fixed some positioning and layering interface issues and squashed a few bugs. Most notably, it is not impossible to vote in a Poll posted inside a Group if you are not a Group member.

PHP breaking changes, preparing for WordPress 5.7

The next major release (3.2) will require PHP 7.2 or newer.

WordPress 5.7 is expected in March, and we already started testing PeepSo against it, to ensure full compatibility on release. The major March PeepSo version released before WordPress 5.7 will require PHP 7.3 or newer.

In February PeepSo will drop support for PHP 7.0 and 7.1 and will require at least PHP 7.2

In March we will further drop PHP 7.2 and require at least PHP 7.3

The current recommended PHP version is 7.4, as WordPress is still only “beta compatible” with PHP 8.

I am a professional nerd with **over a decade of experience** in the field of Open Source web development. Before [PeepSo](https://PeepSo.com) 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 contractor to business owner, I became [PeepSo](https://PeepSo.com) founder and Chief Technology Officer. I strive to build beautiful, fast and functional software that **empowers the users to build their own digital tribes with full autonomy and freedom** often not available on the mainstream social networking media. As a **location independent** *digital nomad* I travel almost constantly, although over the past five years I have spent most of my time in Indonesia and Malaysia. I speak fluent English and Polish, decent German and Spanish and even some Indonesian.
