GD Press Tools 4.1 development has started, and it will take some time to do it all, but here is first alpha version containing part of the features planned for 4.1: improved interface, using timepicker for scheduling jobs, improvements for upcoming WordPress 3.2 and few bugs fixed.

Warning: This is a development snapshot of the upcoming version, and its for use only on test environments. I try to make even alpha versions as stable as possible, but still I can’t recommend that you use this plugin version on your live websites.

Development of GD Press Tools 4.1 will take some time, since there are many features planned for this one, and plan is to have several alpha stages. Each stage will bring one new feature made as stable as possible, for testing, and bug fixing in next alpha version. This first alpha is released with bug fixes (minor sitemap problems, admin bar toggler visible in IFRAME elements and some warnings and notices in PHP), uses updated jQueryUI 1.8.13, adding changes for WordPress 3.2, enhanced color coding for admin menu, using timepicker for scheduling backup and sitemaps and new color scheme for the user interface.

Menu items (image on the left) uses different colors for different groups of menu items, that also depends on the WordPress mode (multisite, network mode…).  New color scheme for the user interface is simpler, doesn’t uses so many colors and now relies on black, red and white only. New interface looks better, especially in the new WordPress 3.2.

Alpha #2 is coming on Tuesday, and it will include scheduler for the Auto Tagger with more options on getting the tags for posts (post type filters and few others). Please, test new version and report back any bugs you may find with both old and upcoming WordPress versions.
