ery once in a while, I am evaluating the development setup used to develop plugins, and make adjustments based on the latest versions of WordPress, PHP, MySQL, and other technologies important to the process.
s previously announced, GD Knowledge Base Pro is the first plugin to get the new Dev4Press Library 3.7 and all-new admin interface. This version also fixes several bugs, has improved metaboxes for content and applies some additional visual changes.
Way back in 2014, GD bbPress Toolbox Pro 3.0 was released, introducing the new interface for the admin side panels and settings, and in the years to come, all the Dev4Press plugins have been updated to use the same interface.
And, the new GD bbPress Toolbox Pro, major version 6.6 has been released. The new version brings many important updates, new features (new icons, improved JS/CSS loading), and improvements, several bug fixes.
Over the past year (almost a full year since the first release), the DemoPress plugin has seen several releases, and it has gotten plenty of new features, new generators, and builders, and many problems have been fixed along the way.
Today, both GD Topic Polls Pro for bbPress version 3.4 and GD Topic Polls Lite for bbPress version 1.6 have been released with changes related to the check to determine if the current user can create or edit the poll.
Finally, GD Quantum Theme Pro 3.0 for bbPress has been released, with two major new features related to the forum index page, and many more other Customizer settings related to various bbPress forum pages.
The latest minor release for GD bbPress Toolbox Pro, version 6.5.4 is the fourth minor release since 6.5 was released back in June, and once again, it fixes several more bugs reporting in the past few weeks.
e most comprehensive knowledge base plugin for WordPress, GD Knowledge Base Pro, has got a major new release in version 5.0 bringing many new improvements, features, and fixes, including blocks for the block editor, improved display, and more.
With everything happening with WordPress in relation to widgets and blocks, plugins like GD Clever Widgets Pro increasingly look outdated and becoming obsolete. But, for now, GD Clever Widgets Pro is safe from retirement.
There are 4 months remaining in 2021, and with the major new website version available today, with a lot of other work already done for various plugins, it is the right time to make the announcement about development plans for the rest of this year.
After about 6 months of development, a new version of the Dev4Press website is now online. The website is built on the GeneratePress Pro theme and GenerateBlocks Pro plugin, it relies heavily on the block editor with many blocks created for this purpose only.
I was not looking at this post at all, but today, two Dev4Press plugins have reached the end of the road: GD Swift Navigator Pro and GD WebFonts Toolbox Pro, and this post will explain the reasons behind the decision.
After months of development, the new Dev4Press website is scheduled for a live update on Sunday, August 29, 2021. That whole day, the Dev4Press website will be mostly under maintenance until the whole process is done.
