2013 is almost at an end, and it is time to see what will come next, and what kind of development will be done in the first part of 2014 on Dev4Press. These plans will be for the first 4 months of next year. And, it will be very busy schedule with many exciting plans.
As you know, development of GD Star Rating 2.0 was not going too well. Main problem is lack of free time, and current direction of the plugin was again getting complex with long development cycle that I simply have no time for considering all the things I work on.
New version GD Products Center Pro 1.3.1 contains new bug fixes (mostly related to rendering, archives and conversion of properties data, minor improvements and changes for full compatibility with WordPress 3.8 (product types icons and few other things).
New major version of GD Custom Posts And Taxonomies Tools Pro 4.3 improves and fixes many issues (metaboxes and modules related mostly), brings compatibility with WordPress 3.7 and 3.8, PHP 5.4 and 5.5. More code cleanup is done to remove old and outdated code.

New minor release for GD Press Tools Pro, version 4.5.1 includes few changes and improvements (debugger, admin interface, WordPress 3.7 and 3.8 compatibility) and many bugs fixed.
New version of xScape Theme Framework and xScape Core theme, some new features, updates and fixes. Major change was done to bbPress extension module, expanded templates support, new version of Font Awesome, improvements for WordPress 3.7 and upcoming 3.8.
Smart Timer And Counter is NOT WordPress plugin, it is powerful plugin for setting up counters or timers with 5 skins (including circular, inline, animated and custom colors), many styles, 2 modes (clock and counter), responsive, easy intergation and much more.
With the launch of new Dev4Press websites, one of the goal was to introduce new licensing model and new pricing for all our plugins and themes, to make it simpler to understand and decide on the license you need, and to remove much hated recurring payments.
GD Simple Widgets Pro and GD Affiliate Center Pro are no longer in development, and they will not be available for purchase any more. There are several things that led to the decision on retiring those plugins and dedicate development time to other Dev4Press plugins.
