Version 2.7.0 Released

Wednesday, August 17, 2022 Tags: release, bugs

Version 2.7.0 or 'Belated Benefits' is finally available! We/ve added support for PHP v8.0 and initial support for PHP v8.1 and Twitter Bootstrap v5 (now integrated). We also fixed quite a number of issues with MySQL v8.0, especially v8.0.19+, and many other things have been tweaked or fixed. If your server PHP version supports it (v5.6.0 or later), we strongly encourage all Exponent installations be upgraded to v2.7.0 as soon as practical!

As with all previous upgrades, we highly recommend you test your system and custom theme before upgrading a production server, especially if jumping over minor version numbers. An article about updating a custom theme can be found here. Several articles about upgrading can be found here.
