Road Map Update

Right now, our two large focuses are a refresh of our main admin page, doing more with Gutenberg blocks and GPDR-compliance. While we are working on these large changes, we will continue to issue small bug fix releases as needed to serve our customers.

How To Test

The simplest way to install test is to install the plugin WP Rollback. This will show a “Rollback” link under each plugin’s name in the WordPress plugin screen. Click the rollback link under Caldera Forms. On the next page select “1.5.9-rc.1” to roll forward to that version.

We strongly recommend you conduct these tests on your staging site.
