We released 3.09 a few months ago, but didn’t make an announcement as it only had a few minor fixes and there was no urgency for 3.08 members to update.
However, since we just sent out a security notice for “very old” Socrates users we wanted to direct you to update to Socrates 3.09. It’s now available on the Download Page.
We also encourage you to read this security notice on the forum.
We’ve just released Socrates 3.08. This is the latest version of Socrates 3.0.
It’s available on the download page here.
This important update has some minor security and deprecation fixes, as well as one major change. We’ve removed the old Socrates activation system. So no code is necessary to activate whether you have a single or unlimited account.
We strongly encourage you to install this update as it will not only improve the security but it will also improve the speed of your site.
[[[ IMPORTANT ]]]
We’ve spent many months working on Socrates 4.0, and it’s finally ready to be released.
As we’ve discussed on the forum and via this webinar, Socrates 4.0 is not a simple upgrade: it is a completely new theme.
What does this mean for Socrates 3.0 users?
Using 4.0 is completely optional. If you’re happy with 3.0 keep using it. We will continue to make security and bug fixes to the original Socrates (3.07), but it will no longer be sold as of this week.
You can still download and use Socrates 3.0 in this members area. However, we may be altering our activation system and issuing new activation codes in the near future. (Don’t worry; the old ones will still work.)
Existing Socrates customers will be able to purchase this new theme at a steeply discounted rate. (See Below and on the Downloads page).
If you purchased the original Socrates within the last 60 days please contact us via our support desk, before purchasing, if we haven’t contacted you already.
It has always been our policy that any upgrades to Socrates would be free, unless we released a major overhaul of the theme. And this certainly qualifies as a huge update, with more features and options than ever, as well as a new look.
To put it simply, in order for us to continue to offer great support and put out a quality product, we need to charge for this product. It would not have been developed otherwise and it was not our wish to just name it something else.
We recognize that 1% of you will have a visceral reaction to us charging for a major overhaul of the theme.. If so, please contact us via the support desk and not the forum.
Finally, if you just want to try out the theme. You can still get a one week trial just by opting in via the main site.
