D7 v4.8.6 has been in Pre-Release for several days…
I am about to upload the full release version, but just thought I’d let you all know that D7 versions will remain in Pre-Release a lot longer than they used to.
Reason being, I’m not a bench tech anymore, not as of Monday. Now I am part I.T. and part a completely different career. I simply won’t have the bench time for testing that I did previously, before releasing final versions.
Anyway… Good news is, D7 v4.8.6 has a redesigned manual update process, which allows you to check for and download either the final or pre-release version. No separate checks anymore! The update window also allows you to download a previous final version if you are currently running a pre-release version – just in case you want to go back.
