Congratulations!
I will try and report bugs if I find.

GO ON!

Thanks Deng, we appreciate the support! :)

Hello. Latest stable ES version was released 6th March 2019 (almost 3 month ago). :(
When do you plan to release ES 3.1 stable?
Or before shoud be RC2, RC3? Thanks.

If there is a need to release RC2 and RC3, we will release them before releasing the stable release. This is to ensure that there is very minimal or bug free release.

We love Stackideas and your support, but sometimes you perhaps don't see the issues weface when you decide what goes into an update and what doesn't.

Our members report issues to us and we forward them to you guys for support.
Often, the fix is found but this is then scheduled for inclusion into the ES3.1 release.
When there are long delays, it puts a lot of pressure back on us as it seems (to our members) that we just aren't listening or fixing things.

For example, I reported that the ability to delete your own account on mobile doesn't work.
This was acknowledged and we were advised that the fix was in ES3.1
Understand that a provision of GDPR is that members must be able to delete their profile....but now on mobile you can't.
So we are potentially in violation.

Waiting a week or 2 is okay, but longer than that and you really need to release the fix as a separate patch.
Updates should introduce new functionality, patches should be used to fix stuff that's broken in the current release.

Anyway, still love you guys and can't wait for the latest update.
To infinity and beyond!

We try our very best to release as and when we can for critical issues but in this case, we are nearing a release cycle and we do think that waiting for the major release would be much more ideal instead.

Looking forward to the release of the stable version. :).

Thanks Abi :)

Are we scheduled for another RC?

Most likely not :)

Thank you sir!

Having an ES RC which runs for almost 2 months is pretty unusual. Wonder what the hold up is?

There was a major structural change to improve performance on EasySocial 3.1 and it has to be tested thoroughly.

Latest version: 3.1.1 - Well done guys.

I just submitted a help desk ticket. I'm not sure if the problems are unique to my site or not.
