With the release of 2.9 many users will be asking, are my plug-ins compatible? Well so far I have some good news. After a couple hours testing I didn’t notice any show stoppers. Actually the only thing I did noticed was that the role names added “|User role” to the name which does not seem to affect the functionality at all. From what I can tell, new installs of 2.9 will not be affected only older upgraded versions. This fix is simple but then WordPress 2.8 or newer will be the minimum required version for Connections.
