With the continuous growth of the Dev4Press, over the past year many things were changed to improve user experience and support. More such changes are coming and they will be introduced on March 4 2012. This will include improvements to forum, products info and more.
Brand new major version of GD Press Tools Pro is here. There are not many new things in this one, but it includes huge core changes by using modules for some of the elements of the plugin. Database, robots meta tags, cron and few other things are expanded with new features.
Last year in November, there was price adjustment for some of the products, and now, a year later we have more price changes. Themes prices are lowered (single and membership), plugins pack with annual payments is also lowered, and individual plugins have equal prices.
I never had problem with paying for services or products (after all, I run commercial plugins and themes business myself), and I planned to upgrade my Akismet license since they introduced the strict payment plan. But, than I discovered that I don’t really need Akismet at all.
All changes I have planned for Dev4Press website are coming along nicely, and new set of changes is now live. This include more improvements to all major website areas, changes to RSS feeds, many more styling changes and special cross-selling available during checkout.
After several months of development and testing, new major release of GD Press Tools Pro is here. Version 4.2 has a long changelog, but focus in this one is new backup module, new auto tagger module, Sucuri free security scan, many bugs fixed and many improvements to rest of the plugin.
First release candidate for GD Press Tools 4.2 Pro is here. With more bugs fixed (sucuri scan, tasks editor, process log for backup tasks and email notifications), updated translation strings, this version adds very important new feature: script to restore or clone full backup archives.
More changes are in for another Beta version of GD Press Tools Pro 4.2. New Beta #3 brings many fixes to backup module (email sending, tasks editor, process log), cron scheduler and XML sitemaps generator, and also adds brand new module for Sucuri Free Security Scan
It’s very close now. Another batch of bugs is fixed in this version, bringing 4.2 release one step closer. This version includes many cosmetic fixes, few real bugs and few more PHP warnings. Most important fix is the site level backup in the multisite/network environments.
No, it’s not a mistake, new GD Press Tools will have version number 4.2. And the first Beta version is here bringing all planned features very close to release status. All features should be working now, and I expect only smaller bugs remaining. Stable version will be released soon.
This latest Alpha release is delayed more than I wanted too, but it is now here bringing many more changes (improved debugger, interface changes, code cleanup) and most importantly reworked Backup panel and brand new SEO panel (replacing old Meta panel).
