Brand new, GD Custom Posts And Taxonomies Tools Pro 3.7 is here, last major release before moving to version 4.0 later this year. And it brings many new and interesting features: expansion modules support, widgets improvements, Google Maps custom field and few more things.
To allow for more flexibility in the future, plugin now support modules architecture already in use in GD Products Center and GD Star Rating 2.0. More info on modules will follow, but for now, two internal modules are available. First one is for custom meta box integration into bbPress and second one (new feature) for integration into WordPress toolbar menu. bbPress module is not changed from previous functionality but one bug is fixed.
To set up modules, new Modules panel is available in the plugin menu. If you were using bbPress integration already, please check if your bbPress settings for the module are preserved after upgrade to 3.7.
New custom field is available, allowing you to add Google Maps. This field right now supports search by address and positioning of marker. More things will be added to the field in the future versions.
All widgets are now available through functions and shortcodes (to be added to documentation soon). Few things with the widgets are improved. New gdr2 library is included and jQueryUI updated to latest 1.8.21 version. To handle Google Maps, GMAP3 library is added.
Next major version 4.0 will take some time to develop, and roadmap already has current plans for it, but that is likely to change and expand with more features. More information on this version is expected in the next couple of months. Until than, few minor revisions are expected. As always, please report any problems or bugs you find in this latest version.
