Quick Mail is Ready for jQuery 3

Discover the latest version of Quick Mail.

Quick Mail is the easiest way to send email with attachments to WordPress users on your site, or send private replies to comments. Compatible with multisite. Includes WP-CLI command. I created Quick Mail in 2014.

What is jQuery?

jQuery is a small JavaScript library that is used on millions of Web sites. jQuery loads fast and is easy to learn.

For example, my Quick Mail WordPress plugin uses jQuery.

But jQuery wants to remove many shorthand functions and change the way other common features are used. There are dozens of deprecated functions. Of course, jQuery also wants to add new features and functions.

WordPress 5.6 Updated jQuery

Alas, WordPress used a 2016 version of jQuery and added a “migration script” to cover deficiencies, until version 5.6.

WordPress 5.6 finally updated jQuery from version 1.12.4-wp to 3.5.1.

WordPress also released the Enable jQuery Migrate Helper plugin to help developers identify and fix deprecation warnings.

I Updated Quick Mail to Use jQuery 3

The WordPress plugin identified the jQuery shorthand warnings in Quick Mail.

jQuery Migrate Plugin – Warning Messages provided additional information.

For example, $(document).on("ready", function {}) is deprecated.

I use that all the time! jQuery suggests replacing the “ready event” with $( function {}) in jQuery 3.

In any event, Quick Mail 4.0.2 is ready for jQuery 3 and WordPress 5.6

Quick Mail 4.0.2 is my 44th release on Github.

Quick Mail Support

Please use Github issues for support. Currently, Quick Mail has no open issues or bug reports.

No Github Account? No Problem!

Send me a note or leave me a comment with your Quick Mail 4.0.2 question at the end of this article.

But I do not expect lots of mail. Because Quick Mail Support on WordPress received less than 20 questions in five years.

Get Quick Mail from Github

Download Quick Mail 4.0.2 from Github.

I tested Quick Mail 4.0.2 with WordPress 5.6.

I hope Quick Mail improves your life and your WordPress experience.
