Was about to install but my WP tells me this plugin is untested with my version of Wordpress. Is it likely to be updated soon?

I’m using this plugin on a daily basis, it’s fast, simple, to the point and gives awesome statistics and overview in project boundaries and time management. Our internal processes are depending on it.

As a teammember of Pronamic I work several years with the plugin. It’s easy to use, expandable and innovatory. Before using Orbis I also looked to other different solutions but no regrets and very happy with this WordPress solution!

As one of the developers of the Orbis plugin i think this plugin has a lot of potential. At Pronamic we have been using Orbis for many years. We can found all our clients, projects and time registrations information in our intranet based on WordPress and Orbis. We have also developed a lot of extra plugins for Orbis. For an overview of all the Orbis plugins you could have a look at the Orbis GitHub page:
