For a while, I’ve tried to come up with newsletter styles / grouped news posts. The problem is that it never felt quite right to issue one without waiting for another’s piece of news, and then another, etc.
So scratch that. I’m back to posting tidbits of news whenever they come up.
And here you have it: b2evo 6.10.1 (stable) has been released. Release notes here. You can download it or auto-upgrade it. We are using it on this site and a handful of others. It’s proven stable already.
The reason we released 6.10.x and not 7.0.x is the infamous GDPR. (Do you enjoy all the GDPR related emails you get these days?)
b2evo 6.10.1 goes a long way toward GDPR compliance. I’m not saying 100% here because this regulation is very deep and we won’t know for a while if we finally hit the bottom or not. One thing for sure, the FUD around it is even worse as with the previous cookie regulations. Anyways, if you find something that’s “not GDPR enough” in your opinion, please let us know and we’ll address it.
Ironically, the other big thing in 6.10 is mailing lists & automations. It’s loaded with super powerful features but we haven’t quite finished the doc yet. So I’ll get back to you on that later. For now, let’s just say it plays super nice with user preferences and easy unsubscribe and it is GDPR compatible ;) … but more on this later…
