Late last week we released a Developer Preview for ExpressionEngine 2.8.2. Being that it’s a maintenance release, there should not be any changes required to update add-ons for compatibility.
However, since a few add-ons are still catching up to 2.8, we thought it would be best to open up another Developer Preview to provide an additional opportunity for third-party developers to get help from us and to communicate any issues impeding their add-ons from being compatible.
We are constantly looking at how we can improve how we work with third-party developers to enable their add-ons to be ready simultaneous with an ExpressionEngine feature release. We’ve noticed that some developers are having difficulty being ready on time, and we want to ensure that the pathway for them to communicate with our engineers is clear. So we thought we would create a page in our user guide to make it easier for folks to know about the existing Developer Preview Program, enjoy.
