The Lamplighter Add-on Will Take the Place of devot:ee Monitor
The devot:ee Monitor has been a very popular add-on since it launched in April 2012. As part of a bigger vision for how EE developers can monitor and update their add-ons, the Monitor will be retired and development time and effort will be focused on the Lamplighter add-on, which will take the place of Monitor.
Lamplighter includes all the functionality of devot:ee Monitor. Monitor’s final version is the current one: 1.2.4. You’re encouraged to switch out any devot:ee Monitor installs you have with Lamplighter (v1.1.2+) at your earliest convenience.
devot:ee Monitor will no longer be patched or updated. It will continue to work until the end of June 2014. Please install Lamplighter instead.

I’ve been posting these weekly updates on EE Insider since way back on July 29, 2010. Before I started doing them myself, Ryan Irelan had been posting weekly articles. That said, we might have a first in the couple hundred times we’ve been posting these updates: there were no new add-ons submitted to devot:ee over the past week. Not to fear, I’m sure ExpressionEngine developers everywhere took advantage of the holiday break to re-charge and prepare for 2014. I hope everyone had an enjoyable, restful and safe holiday season. Happy New Year to the ExpressionEngine community. Now get back to work!
