Today we released a long-awaited update for our core WP RSS Aggregator plugin.

Besides bug fixes and a few enhancements, this version also sees the introduction of Composer and Phing, as well as a RegEx HTML Encodifier and the start of an integration with a custom Diagnostics plugin which will be available in the coming months.

These improvements will close off 2017 in a positive way, with more to look forward to in 2017. Here’s a look at everything that has changed:
