Another new version of now old GD Star Rating is here with many changes and fixes. Most of the changes in this version are provided by Galen Wright-Watson from sublimitywebdesign.com and big thanks goes to him for patches and explanations he provided about them.
New minor revision of the 1.9 branch brings few important changes: plugin now uses user roles and capabilities instead of user levels, fixes some warnings and minor problems in the main plugin CSS file. Also, new panel is added as preparation for next GD Star Rating 2.0.
This is officially last version of the old 1.9 branch of GD Star Rating plugin. This version is improving plugin security with additional filtering of all AJAX received voting and rendering requests. GDSR 2.0 development is well under way, with public alpha expected in about 3 weeks.
GD Star Rating 1.9.3 is second maintenance release targeting WordPress 3.0 reported problems. Many bugs are fixed with this release, and many things changed to add support for custom post types. This release includes fixes for all bugs reported that I could confirm so far.
GD Star Rating 1.9 is just released with one purpose only: to improve and complete support for Google Rich Snippets. Up until now plugin supported only microdata format for snippets, but now this is updated with support for RDF and microdata. And more.
