WP-CLI v2.5.0 release date

The long-awaited release v2.5.0 of WP-CLIWP-CLI WP-CLI is the Command Line Interface for WordPress, used to do administrative and development tasks in a programmatic way. The project page is http://wp-cli.org/ https://make.wordpress.org/cli/ is scheduled to be published on Wednesday, May 19th, 2021.

I won’t go into too much detail about why the release was so long in the making, but let me nevertheless add a link to an article in which Juliette Reinders Folmer eloquently talks about some of the reasons: https://24daysindecember.net/2020/12/21/a-perfect-storm/. Add to this the fact that the pandemic situation has drastically reduced the pool of contributors, as well as Travis CI deciding to effectively drop OSS support (forcing me to switch both testing and deployments to GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. https://github.com/ Actions), and we’re in a situation that I’m glad will finally be resolved again soon.

Thanks to all the sponsors of the project that make it possible to work on WP-CLI with the persistence and staying power it requires.

Also big thanks to the contributors to the project that kept helping me figure out bugs and come up with solutions! I truly appreciate all your assistance.

And in case you’re one of the many people who created an issue in recent times that hasn’t been resolved yet, know that getting v2.5.0 out was an absolute priority, but I’ll slowly work off the backlog again once the pressing compatibility issues have been taken care of.
