When support kicks in

In case you aren’t aware of the history of SpeakOut!, it came from a plugin named SpeakUp by Kreg Wallace.  It was a good plugin but Kreg seems to have abandoned it and he can’t be found.

The plugin needed some touching up after no updates in 4 years so I took it on, renaming it to SpeakOut! to keep them separate while acknowledging the origins.

That was in 2015 some time.  Every once in a while I tinkered with the plugin to make changes I wanted and all was quiet.  I never pushed an update.

Then one day in April 2017 I discovered that there is a support forum and life changed for me and the plugin.  There were dozens and dozens of support requests and bug reports that I had no idea existed.  I tried to go back through them but it was too hard if they were more than 6 months old.  But I did manage to solve some issues and now am looking after the plugin actively.

Here is what happens to downloads when you finally release updates 😛
