Shopp is fully compatible with WordPress 2.9 with no known issues reported. We’ve been testing Shopp with pre-release versions of WordPress 2.9 since before the beta releases were made available. By all means, feel free to update and enjoy the new goodies and bug fixes the WordPress developers have been working on.
Shopp 1.0.18 Beta
We are busy preparing the 1.0.18 release and have delivered the first beta to our beta testing team. In contrast to our previous releases, we’ll be baking this one a little longer to ensure the larger fixes are working across the entire system. There isn’t a definite release timeline for 1.0.18, but we’ll have an announcement related to the official release date sometime after the new year.
Holiday Support Availablility
The Shopp Support team will not be available during the Christmas holiday weekend starting on Christmas Eve from December 24th — December 27th and on New Year’s weekend starting on New Year’s Day from January 1st, 2010 — January 3rd, 2010.
Shopp is proud to sponsor another great WordPress community event, WordCamp Boston 2010. WordCamp Boston will be held January 23, 2010 at the Microsoft NERD Center.
