This is a minor update for GD Press Tools Pro, but an important one: it fixes few issues with the script used to restore the full backup from the archive into the new website. It fixes a few backup issues that are also related to restoration.

The restore script was stuck for a long while and was not updated since the early 5.0 versions. But, with the backup changes in 6.0, the restore script was not properly updated, making it broken. This new version sorts various issues with the restore script: updated PCLZIP library included to make the restore script fully compatible with the PHP 7.2 and newer (it was working, but giving warnings), other PHP 7.x related warnings, lacking information and few more things.

But, because of the changes in the 6.0 plugin version, the restore script was not able to restore full backups made by GD Press Tools Pro versions 6.0 up to 6.1.1. To use a new restore script in 6.1.2, backup has to be created by GD Press Tools Pro 6.1.2 or newer. This was caused by the change (and really a bug) in 6.0, and the full backup is missing few pieces of information required by the restore script.

GD Press Tools Pro also had a bug preventing download of the restore script, and that is also fixed now.
