    I love this plugin, having used it since it was released. I still use it on many sites, for sites that I want to manage less, but keep them secure with updates, and I can easily fix any that break from an auto-update.

    The Disable Emails checkbox no longer works in WordPress 5.5, it’d be great if this plugin was updated to fix that.

    This is due to the fact that WordPress added its own notification when themes & plugins are updated (separate from the email coming from this plugin.)

    In lieu of this plugin receiving further updates to address that separate behavior (or just in general), consider using Disable Theme and Plugin Auto-Update Emails (https://wordpress.org/plugins/disable-theme-and-plugin-auto-update-emails/), or similar, as that deactivates those WordPress 5.5+ email notifications upon theme and/or plugin updates when installed & enabled on a site (it simply implements what WordPress team recommended on https://make.wordpress.org/core/2020/07/30/controlling-plugin-and-theme-auto-update-email-notifications-and-site-health-infos-in-wp-5-5/ as a ready-to-use plugin & nothing more.)

    At a certain point, why is this plugin needed given WordPress 5.5+ kinda implementing the functionality of this plugin natively? While, yes, you still need to disable the WordPress notifications if you don’t want those (again, that being separate from this particular plugin.)

    Good points, I just have this plugin installed on a ton of sites, so hoping it would just be updated as well so it continues to work like it did before, for my ease of use.
