v3.12.0 – New WordOps stable release

After a few quieter months, a new stable WordOps release is available !
We hope you are safe and healthy during these uncertain times.

What’s New ?

The latest Nginx stable release package is now shipped with WordOps (1.18.0), built with the latest OpenSSL release (1.1.1g) and we added support for the brand new Ubuntu LTS (20.04) named Focal Fossa.
The support of Ubuntu 20.04 LTS is still experimental mostly because MariaDB official repository doesn’t provide stable packages for this distribution yet.

WordOps default PHP version is now 7.3, and you can now customize this variable in the file /etc/wo/wo.conf.
