    Hi @adjayabdg and @watershare

    I’m sorry for the inconvenience of having shipped a broken version that we reverted to a stable version with the latest update 2.5.10

    We’re working tirelessly to bring you an amazing experience and are introducing a test automation and coding standards.

    If you want to contribute fixes and enhancements, development is an open process at

    Thanks Mark

    Suggestion here – seems like you are bringing out a LOTof versions, and that errors are being introduced because of “continuOUS improvement fatigue” – i would recommend using a system of “continuAL improvement” instead: planned releases at predetermined intervals, and only after testing and review

    ~just a thought from someone who appreciates your hard work

    Thanks again

    Thanks, @watershare,

    taking your advice to heart. We’re in the middle of major changes in how we’re running the project. Huge amounts of work have been done behind the scenes to adhere to WordPress coding standards and reduce the amount of JavaScript used to name a few.
    So yes, we’re going to have a more planned release cycle.

    Best wishes
