Well, the day is finally here: The Events Calendar 3.0is live! Thanks to everyone for their patience as we worked to get this finalized (and missed a few self-imposed deadlines along the way). This is a HUGE release – so big that we’ve started the changelog over from scratch.
Because of the update’s size, please also make sure you’re considering this when updating your site. You’re going to want to:
1. Back up your site entirely before beginning the process.
2. Update The Events Calendar to 2.0.11 (the last stable release) before making the jump to 3.0.
3. Not seeing the update prompt at the backend of your site? Don’t worry: you can force it to check manually by navigating to Dashboard -> Updates, and hitting “Check Again.” You may need to hit it a few times – but eventually, you’ll see messaging confirming that the updates are ready to install.
4. If you're also running The Events Calendar PRO, it's important that you update the core The Events Calendar to 3.0 BEFORE updating PRO to 3.0.
One last point: since this is such a huge release, there are bound to be bugs. We QA’d the heck out of 3.0 but there’s no way to test every single use case – so we’re looking to you guys to report issues. The release of 3.0 marks the return to our monthly maintenance release schedule, so we’ll be releasing maintenance builds to patch bugs frequently over the coming weeks/months. Please post your issues in separate, new threads (rather than as comments in this one).
Thanks again to everyone for their patience so far. We look forward to hearing your feedback and making this plugin better and better with each impending dot-release.
