Even though WP 3.0 few weeks away from release, current development versions after Beta 1 are proven to be very stable. So I decided to upgrade Dev4Press to WP 3.0 and take advantage of some of the new features this latest WordPress has to offer.
WordPress 3.0 is updated daily, and current development is changing things non stop. Since the previous versions of plugin from last week, things have changed again, and again in WP breaking the plugin. So, here are new versions that work with current WP.
Another major release for GD Press Tools, again with some very interesting new features. Yesterday Lite version of GD Press Tools 2.4.2 was released with added support for multi site or MU versions of WordPress. That is also part of this latest Pro edition.
As you see, GD Taxonomies Tools plugin is now renamed to GD Custom Posts And Taxonomies Tools. Since WordPress 3.0 adds support for Custom Post Types, and implementation is close to Custom Taxonomies, I decided to add that to existing plugin.
There is no doubt about it, WordPress 3.0 represents significant step forward for WordPress with merging with WPMU adding custom post types and many more minor elements that you will notices as soon as you install it. But I feel that this major releases is rushed.
I wasn’t posting news about releases of GD Star Rating on this website for some time to avoid duplicating info with official GD Star Rating website. But, since this 1.8.7 is likely to be last release in GDSR 1.x branch, this is a summary post about what’s done and what’s coming in GDSR 2.0.
With new WordPress 3.0 to be released soon, it’s time to use some of the new great features this WP brings. And most important new element is support for custom post types. But, that requires some more testing and updating GD Taxonomies Tools plugin.
WordPress 3.0 is almost here, and the latest Beta 1 released last week is a good reference for what to expected. Some things were changed in the past 2 months with taxonomies in WP3, and here are new versions of GD Taxonomies Tools plugin to follow those changes.
Both Pro and Lite editions are updated with many bugs fixed. Lite edition also got new translation, this time to French thanks to Olivier Barre. Major problem with both versions was delayed RSS publish with invalid mySQL syntax and problems with post duplication.
During the preparation and changes done to previous version of GD Simple Widgets, one very important bug still remained, causing author widget to display invalid URL to author posts page. This new version fixes this problem in both Lite and Pro editions.
Here is the first official, and most important stable, release of Dev4Press Updater plugin. Unfortunately, if you used previous version, you can’t perform update with it, because installation was broken in that one, so you need to install this version manually.
