WP Ultimo 2.3.0: Custom Meta Fields, Webhook Fixes, and a New Release Strategy

TL;DR: TL;DR: WP Ultimo 2.3.0 rolls out with features such as custom meta fields for better customer data management, webhooks triggering corrections, and localizations for Portuguese, Spanish, and French. Not to forget, an improved autoload system that ensures better plugin compatibility. Finally, we have a new release strategy to ensure versions are released more consistently and potential risks on updates are minimized.

We’re excited to announce the release of WP Ultimo 2.3.0. This update brings significant enhancements and awaited features that will allow for customization, automation, and a smoother experience for users.

Custom Meta Fields for Customer Management

In this release, we’ve introduced a highly flexible feature: custom meta fields for customers in the admin area. This tool allows you to collect additional information from your users, that sometimes is not previously captured during the signup process. The potential for automation and WP Ultimo customizations is now expanded, as these fields can be used to tailor and streamline your operations.

Plugin Localization

As part of our commitment to making WP Ultimo truly global, we’re introducing a series of translations for Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish, and French. This is a huge leap towards ensuring that more users can experience WP Ultimo in their native language, making it more accessible and user-friendly for non-English speakers.

Improved Autoload System

Lastly, we’ve improved our autoload system to mitigate any conflicts with other plugins. This enhancement is part of our ongoing effort to ensure WP Ultimo operates seamlessly within the diverse ecosystem of WordPress plugins, providing a more stable and reliable platform for all users.

Webhooks triggering fixes

Some webhooks were not being triggered during the creation and update processes. We have addressed this issue and now things are working in the way we intended.

New release strategy

In previous releases, before version 2.2.0, a closer look at the changelog revealed a significant gap in time between updates. Additionally, these updates tended to include an extensive scope of changes and fixes, all bundled into one massive release.

This latest version consolidates a refreshing change in our release cycle.

For a while now we have been adopting a streamlined approach, focusing on a central feature and rolling out fixes as soon as they are ready. This shift not only reduces the scope of each release but also minimizes the potential risks during updates and eliminates the long wait for crucial corrections.

In fact, 2.3.0 has a concise changelog with just 7 items, showcasing this significant alteration at its core. Since the release of version 2.2.0 on September 28th, we’ve already rolled out three rounds of patch updates, addressing numerous issues reported through our support channels.

This stands in contrast to the extensive changelog of version 2.1.2 as an example, which boasted 57 entries and a lengthy 2-month gap between 2.1.1 and 2.1.2.

These positive changes in our release strategy reflect our commitment to providing a more efficient and responsive experience for our users.

2.3.0: Erasmo

This version is called Erasmo in honor of the Brazilian singer and songwriter Erasmo Carlos, who left us in 2022, at the age of 81.

Erasmo was one of the faces of Jovem Guarda, a Brazilian musical TV show aired during the 1960’s. The show was highly influenced by American rock’n roll and the British Invasion of rock bands of that decade.

But he wasn’t only rock’n roll. Samba, Soul, and some Hippie influences were also part of his music. Remember Tim Maia (version 2.0.0)? He taught Erasmo his first guitar chords. Erasmo was also friends with Roberto Carlos (another Jovem Guarda’s icon) and the two composed many, many lyrics together going from yeah, yeah, yeah, to romantic songs.

Erasmo sang about love, friendship, ecology, and many other subjects distributed along more than two dozen albums. Here, you can listen to one of his classic songs Minha fama de mau. If you’re feeling more romantic, go for this version of Do fundo do meu coração, with Adriana Calcanhoto. And don’t forget to check out this awesome playlist.

As always, thank you for your continuous support, and let us know if you have any questions.
