Using Kickstarter to fund open source

Successfully crowdfunding open source development is difficult, but not impossible. Here are some of the lessons I took away from my Kickstarter project, “A more RESTful WP-CLI.”

WP-CLI v0.24.0 released

Aliases, SSH support, and native wp-settings.php, with dozens of enhancements and bug fixes.

Summary of the bootstrap / load updates coming in WordPress 4.6

Summary of the bootstrap / load updates coming in WordPress 4.6. Notable, after WordPress 4.6, WP-CLI will be fully compatible with any future changes to wp-settings.php. Previously, changes to wp-settings.php would break WP-CLI. Many thanks to Aaron Jorbin for helping work through the core changes.
