As I have announced already, I will going to benchmark various aspects of WordPress and plugins used. Before I proceed publishing benchmark results I am working on right now, I want to describe the benchmark setup I will use, WordPress versions and plugins that will be installed. So here is the test environment.
As I promised when this new Dev4Press started last month, there will be plugin able to automatically upgrade Pro plugins the same way WordPress does for regular plugins. And this updater plugin is currently under development and will be released next week.
