This update again improves on the auto-update response handler. Adding better handling for if you’re banned for some reason. Also a few security oriented measures have been implemented for zip uploads. And some other handy tweaks and fixes for general use.
Staying up-to-date with plugins is important and is almost never a bad thing. Updates are important for your website security. But more often updates also add new or improve features as well.
Updates are available via your dashboard and require no special skills to install, this makes it extremely easy to keep your site secure and have the latest features.
Auto-updates have been causing some trouble for the first half of the year. Version 5.8.5 marked the first fully functional version to work with Automatic updates in WordPress. Version 5.8.7 improves on this even further.
If you’re stuck with an older version, please take a look at this page on how to deal with that – https://ajdg.solutions/support/adrotate-manuals/adrotate-pro-update-not-working-or-not-offered/
Update (Nov 4, 2020): Due to an error in the updated file the new version listed as version 5.8.6 for the first few hours after releasing the update. You HAVE the right version, but the version number on it is wrong. This may prompt WordPress to give you the update again and again. This has been corrected as of 11:30AM (EST) and the right version number is now provided with the update.
