Some more testing revealed several bugs, and also some bugs were reported in the forum, so here is another Alpha release with many bugs fixed and more improvements to the interface. There are still few known issues that will be fixed in upcoming versions (Beta and Final).
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. Also, new Backup is NOT compatible with old one! Once you upgrade to this version, all scheduled backups from old version will stop working.
Known Issues: Backup tasks editing not working. Backup process log and statistics tab not done yet. Problems with custom files backup.
For users that were using Alpha #2, new backup was broken, and default backup task missing (and quick backup broken because of that). To remedy this problem, you need to reinitialize backup tasks: Go to Plugin Tools panel, open Reset tab, and from Tasks And Connections select Backup tasks and click on Reset button. This should bring the default task and everything should be OK. Report back if this is still broken.
All icons and images are now replaced with new ones. New icons are done with Axialis IconWorkshop. Minor changes are added to File Manager with few fixes, Security panel got few things fixed and XML Sitemap manual rebuild works again.
In the next couple of days, I will release 4.1 Beta version, and soon after that final 4.1 will follow. So, please report all errors or problems you encounter with this release, I expect that there are some bugs in still, mostly with new Backup module. If you have some suggestions on the features present in this version, leave comments in this post or in the forum.
Next week will see several new video tutorials for new backup, auto tagger and few other things.
