The release of the new WoltLab Suite™ 6.0 version series is imminent. Therefore, we would like to inform you today about what you have to consider in this regard when using our software products.
WoltLab Suite™ 6.0 comes with a number of functional innovations and improvements. In addition, technical modernizations are continuously taking place to eliminate existing problems and be prepared for the future. These extensive changes inevitably lead to the fact that many plugins would no longer function properly without appropriate adjustments. Therefore, an update to WoltLab Suite™ 6.0 is only possible as soon as the manufacturers of all installed plugins have established the compatibility of their plugins with the new version series and explicitly released it in the form of a new plugin version. This also applies to all plugins from Krymo Software.
It is important to us that our software products work smoothly and error-free, so that you do not have any stress or hassle. That's why we also place a great deal of emphasis on quality assurance. The compatibility checks, technical adjustments and subsequent quality assurance take some time for an extensive undertaking as in this case. Due to the effort involved, a variable update fee will be charged for the new plugin versions.
Furthermore, we have decided to stop development and distribution of specific plugins. This also means that these plugins will not receive a version that will be compatible with WoltLab Suite™ 6.0. The distribution of these plugins for older versions of WoltLab Suite™ has already been discontinued. This will allow us to shift our focus to more popular plugins, which will benefit a larger customer base.
