Statement about iQ Block Country

 As most of you have seen the plugin has been temporarily blocked from download on the WordPress Plugin. The wonderful people at WordPress reviewed the code after a small security issue was found in the code which only could be abused by people with administrator rights (which was fixed in last update).

They found some other issues as well relating to “Best Practices”, as obviously I started coding this plugin many many many years ago and WordPress has evolved there should be made some improvements to comply to the best practices. Sadly due to a very busy work schedule I missed a deadline set by WordPress and they closed the plugin for download.

I am currently working as hard as I can on updating the code but it involves a lot of small changes that also need to be tested and I am still currently very busy with other things as well.

So no worries if you currently use the the plugin it is safe to keep using it, the project has not been abandoned and it will be hopefully be as quick as I can make the changes back online.

I am sorry but I cannot respond to everyone who has mailed as I obviously rather spend that time improving the plugin.
