Gravity Forms released a major update in version 2.3 last week. The plugins page of your author’s WordPress dashboard highlighted the update in orange with a message about this being a major update and a link explaining in more detail what it entailed, most significantly table renaming and background migration of entry data into different table fields. It was tempting to just trust that the GF team that supports such an integral and solid plugin had thought of every possible thing that could go wrong and debugged it already, and roll the dice on updating, but whenever I see “major” update, and they mention that this is the biggest update to the plugin since it’s release, I hesitate to jump into it right away. Better to let someone else check it out for a few days!
I believe that this little bit of caution saved us a lot of headaches this week since the 2.3 release was apparently rolled back and a 188.8.131.52 release appeared. Not much information has been forthcoming about what happened, but some comments on Facebook complained of disappearing forms and ghost notifications being sent randomly from form submissions after updating to 2.3.
