Migration Plugin Work Required

Once the stable release for 1.3.0 is out, we will look to push some updates to the Migration Plugin.

Other thread re this: CP Migration plugin needs some TLC

Here is a running list of work which would be nice to get done:

Point one is already covered by a PR to the migration plugin here:

Point two is also already covered by a PR to the APIs here:

Point three is beyond my capabilities :slight_smile:


Re point 3, I think as a very basic start we should add some test coverage to the plugin. Then once we have a test suite running we can wrestle with getting it to automatically run with new updates.

Both PRs look good to me :+1:

We can probably try get those 2 merged in this week?

Migration plugin api update has been pushed. This bumps the max version that is supported and adds support for checking for plugins and themes that conflict. Thanks @MattyRob.

This patch updates supported WordPress migrations from:
5.5.4, 5.5.5
5.6, 5.6.1, 5.6.2, 5.6.3, 5.6.4
5.7, 5.7.1, 5.7.2

With reported success migrating from WP 5.8 we will get a PR up for that too, and deployed hopefully by early next week. The more people testing the migration from WP 5.8 the more confidence we have bumping the version in the API.
