WP Ultimo 1.10.4 is here and we have a couple of important things to share with you.
Stripe SCA Update
Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) came into force on September 14, 2019.
The rule is a requirement of the European Union Revised Directive on Payment Services (PSD2) and establishes that electronic payments need to be performed with multi-factor authentication, to increase their security.
After SCA, payment flows that don’t meet these requirements may be refused by customers’ banks.
In order to prevent such headache, WP Ultimo 1.10.4 brings the new Stripe checkout, which is already compatible with this directive. You can check Stripe SCA video and more by clicking here.
Runcloud.io v.2 API Support
WP Ultimo was using the old Runcloud API, and the 2.0 release of their API broke our domain mapping integration. WP Ultimo 1.10.4 updates our code to make use of their new API.
There is no need to make any local changes or settings adjustments. The Runcloud.io Configuration tutorial is still the same, only the code implementation differs.
And as a bonus, Runcloud is now on our list of host integrations with auto-SSL support – since the new API offers it – alongside with Closte, WPMU DEV, and CPanel. WP Ultimo will automatically redeploy your SSL certificate on RunCloud, which allows the newly added domains to be included on the new certificate.

Other things you should know about
Our Admin Themes are not on CodeCanyon anymore
We finally transitioned our admin themes to a recurring revenue model as well, removing them from CodeCanyon. We wrote a post explaining the reasons why.
To celebrate the move, we are offering 30% OFF on the Lifetime option for both of them until September 30: Just use the coupon code
NEWHOME during checkout. Visit Material WP and PRO Theme websites, where the Admin Themes are now sold.
Note: The themes are available as add-ons for WP Ultimo on the Lifetime and Pro plans, but that version does not support stand-alone use (being used without WP Ultimo). These are the stand-alone versions =)
