Coming soon: GD Press Tools 3.8

Next major release of GD Press Tools is coming soon with many new features. As usual, this is only for Pro version, and 3.8 will be last major release in the 3.x line. Here is more info on what this version will include, and also a coupon code for 20% discount.

Plugins dashboard widget has a new element displayed: Google Page Rank. It will be refreshed every week, since Google is not updating public values of Page Rank that often. For 4.0 plan is to get Page Rank for each page. Great deal of code is optimized and cleaned, old and unused code removed, some functions merged. All forms for all plugin panels are now secured using nonce protection. Maintenance mode is moved to separate class and improved.

Database panel is now split into two panels. One is still called Database and it can be used to review the database tables and database tools, including mySQL settings. Backup is now moved to a new panel called Backup. New backup will have only database backup moved, but with 4.0 you will be able to backup whole website (all or selected files and folders). Backup will be able to move files to CDN also. First CDN that will be supported with this version is RackspaceCloud. Until 4.0 is released, Amazon and VPS.NET will be supported also.

Old user levels used for displaying panels are replaced with capabilities, and defaults are added to administrator roles. There are options to add some of the capabilities to other user roles too. Both Pro and Lite will have this implemented.

GD Press Tools 3.8 Pro and GD Press Tools 2.6 Lite will be released on Monday September 13 2010.

Promo coupon

Starting now, and until the end of September, a coupon is available that will give you 20% discount. Coupon can be used with GD Press Tools and Dev4Press Bundle purchases. This coupon is: GDPT38PRO.

  1. 3.8 and 4.0 is great for CDN users. Anyway please make it supports MaxCDN or NetDNA as well.

    • Rackspace is only first to be supported, for 4.0 I will add as many CDN’s as I can. Also, there will be public functions for handling upload to CDN, so that other plugins can use it.
