Upgrade to minor releases only for plugins

Post by jas8522 » Wed Jun 15, 2016 7:23 am

Hey guys,

It would be great to be able to enable automatic upgrade for WordPress plugins, but only for minor releases. I know most plugin developers don't really do much with their versioning, but some of the more major plugins like WooCommerce, Tribe Events, Gravity Forms (to name a few) definitely do make sure to stick to specific versioning structure.

When WooCommerce specifically releases a major update they very often tend to break things in terms of compatibility with other plugins. It would be great to try to auto-detect major version number increments for plugins, or maybe keep a list for the most popular / large plugins like those listed above and provide an option to not upgrade major releases immediately.

Hi Jordan,

Thanks for the suggestion!

This would be a useful option, however determining which releases are major/minor outside of WooCmmerce and other well-versioned plugins would be tricky.

We'll research this further and see what we can come up with.
