Members Plugin sold to Caseproof

Justin Tadlock, one of the legends of WordPress, has announced that he has sold the WordPress plugin Members.

The new owner is Caseproof, which was founded in 2003 by Blair Williams. The company has been building WordPress plugins for over 10 years and is the team behind the MemberPress and Affiliate Royale WordPress plugins.

This was not an easy decision for me. Over 100,000 of you have put your faith and trust behind me over the years to maintain a quality role management plugin. However, it would not be fair for me to keep the plugin while not being able to put in the time and effort required to maintain it. That is something I cannot realistically do at this point in my life. I would rather see Members in the hands of a team that can devote the resources necessary to continue making it a great plugin, Tadlock wrote on his official blog.

Justin Tadlock is known for Theme Hybrid. Theme Hybrid is one of the longest-running WordPress shops in the world with over 11 years of providing tools for people to run successful Web sites.
