Few months have passed since our last post here, so let's get ready to rumble🙂
Supported PHP & MySQL Versions:
The PHP min version was increased to PHP 7.2 in IPS 4.6, this means that your marketplace submissions are required to work with this version, but keep in mind that few clients are going to use php8, so I would really suggest to try to get your code working with both versions, which means that you'll need to implement some changes to avoid some BC breaks in PHP8.
Here's a great list https://www.php.net/manual/en/migration80.incompatible.php
I have mentioned this change in another topic today, so let's recap it here too:)
We have a new IN_DEV code check similar to the slash check, which will inform you about any outputs containing the CSRF key in the URL.
This is a bad practice allowing attackers and 3rd parties to obtain the users CSRF key, so please try avoid this at any cost!
We're not going to reject MP submissions because of this, but please try to avoid this as much as much as possible.
Please keep in mind that you're permitted to have only one payout request per week;) Since this didn't work out that great and to avoid any drama about canceled requests, this is going to be handled now automatically. As long as there's an open request, you won't be able to submit any new requests! But don't worry, you'll still be able to cancel it and create a new request!
