Has the cron/queue process changed in 3.2? I upgraded from 3.1.9 to 3.2.2 and tried sending the mornal mass email which I have done every month for years. It populates queue.php with the info but the file doesn't process. Queue_interval is still 3600 (an hour).
Cron isn't locked apparently as I installed the cron status ext and I can see the queue job enabled and manually ran it once. The timestamp on the file changes but it remains identical to what it was prior to running. It has stayed this way the past 2 days. I also deleted the 0-byte queue.php.lock file once, and it just gets recreated.
The only setting I've changed with the upgrade is the new Verify SSL cert. Since I'm on a shared host I must set that to No, but I have tested that emails do work.
I just deleted the queue.php file and it's lock and recreated a new email to see if that helps in another 40 minutes.
What else should I be looking at?
