Task Rocket has reached end of life status
As of today, Task Rocket has officially reached permanent end of life status, with wProject being its official successor.
What does ‘end of life status’ actually mean? It’s basically what it sounds like. Task Rocket and it’s plugins are no longer available for download (although if you really want it I can make a copy available on request). And while I am happy to provide a copy if you ask, be aware that it is not supported in any way for even the most minor of queries.
Additionally, I do not know how it will behave on newer versions of WordPress and PHP, but I can take an educated guess.
At the time of the January announcement the last update to Task Rocket was back in September of 2020 when WordPress was at version 5.4.2, and as of posting this article WordPress has since had four major updates is now at version 5.8.2. Additionally, most reputable web hosts are now running PHP 7.4 now and many have already transitioned to PHP 8.
Task Rocket was last updated while developing on PHP 5.6 and it will almost certainly have issues on PHP 7+ and absolutely will have trouble on PHP 8. So use at your own peril.
As always, if you have any questions you know how to find me.
