Reminder: Please Test Your Plugins With 4.2

WordPress 4.2 is being released this week. Are your plugins ready?

After testing your plugins and ensuring compatibility, it only takes a few moments to change the readme “Tested up to:” value to 4.2. This information provides peace of mind to users and helps encourage them to update to the latest version.

For each plugin that is compatible, you don’t need to release a new version — just change the stable version’s readme value.

In the same vein, please take the time to make sure the people listed as committers on your plugin are only the people who are actively developing the plugin.

Finally, if the email associated with your wordpress.org plugin author’s account has an auto-reply, please for the love of peanut butter change that or put plugins@wordpress.org on a magic whitelist that doesn’t get the auto-replies. We very rarely send you out important emails, but when we do, they’re related to security or upgrades. When you give us an auto-reply, it delays things and makes our in-box insanely large.
