7.8.9 is coming

7.8.9 is already being worked on.

You can see the status for all of our official apps in the outdated official apps thread. If you see an app needing an update that isn't in that list, that post is also the place to report it.

For future reference you can find it stickied in the General Discussion forum, or the last link on our Development page.

GnuPG, also needs to be updated.
Thunderbird updated and GnuPG is not like having a revolver without bullets.

Sorry, bad choice of words.

Sorry, bad choice of words. It is not being worked on, but the update is known about.

We only have limited resources - most of the app updates are performed by only a single person.

Blocking Bug

I neglected to indicate the blocking bug in the Outdated Apps Thread for Notepad++. There's a data loss bug I'm working on specifically around upgrades and users losing their sessions. It's indicated now:

GPG was updated today.

I'm still catching up post Covid-19 recovery. My weekly antibody donations are taking a bit more out of me than expected (yesterday's cut my work day down to about 1/2 for instance) and I have some other family, friend, and financial concerns, so it is taking longer than expected. The big things like Firefox, Thunderbird, and the platform are caught up. The other things should be caught up soon.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
