GD Press Tools 4.3.2 Pro

Few days remain in 2011, and this is last release from Dev4Press in this year. Work on GD Press Tools Pro will resume later in January 2012. For new, this release brings several important changes and new features, better optimization for resource usage and number of bugs fixed.

Debugger and tracker got many updates. Tracker with each snapshot can count hooks attached, and list of default snapshot points is expanded to include few more important hooks. Debugger got two new panels: one to display all enqueued scripts and styles, and the other one with extra info moved from other panels (sessions, cookies and cache status). Also, you have more control over displaying some of the panels you might not need always. Some panels are updated and some debugger bugs are fixed.

Some parts of the plugin are optimized further. RSS feed items expanding now support special tags to add some of the post and site info easier. Plugin tools got option to reset all security related settings. For the SEO verification meta tags, new one has added for the Alexa site ownership confirmation.

As for the bugs, quite a few of them are fixed now: saving security settings was failing in some cases, some input elements were generated as invalid, problem with creating the plugin folders when wp-content is not writable, post revisions setting might not always work and some debugger problems. If you have problems with security settings missing due to saving problem, you can reset security settings to defaults from the Plugin Tools panel.

As always, please report in the forums any bugs you find, and I will get on fixing it.
