Few days ago I have posted about upcoming GD Star Rating 2.0 on Dev4Press and new ratings and interface and a list of detailed features that first 2.0 version will include and what features will be delayed for 2.1 and later versions. Here is a quick overview, and you can check full posts on Dev4Press.
Over the past 2 months GD Press Tools 4 Pro have seen 7 minor revisions that were used to add new features, to improve existing features and to fix reported bugs. Here is a short overview of all changes plugin received during this period and few things to expect in the upcoming 4.1 version.
After previous last minor maintenance release, here is GD Star Rating 1.9.8 and it’s again probably last minor maintenance release fixing few issues reported. And, sorry, no news on GD Star Rating 2.0, I simply don’t have any free time to work on it, but really hope to find some time soon.
The release of GD Press Tools 4.0 Pro is very close, and here is the first Beta version. At this point, all the features are locked, but there are many more planned features that will be added to the roadmap for 4.1 and 4.2 versions. Here is the quick overview of this release.
I have published 6 articles/tutorials on Dev4Press website on different security aspects related to WordPress, covering everything from server environment, file system using of .htacess file, WordPress tips, methods for spam prevention and recommendations for improving plugins and themes security.
As many of you have noticed over the past 2 days, package with GD Star Rating 1.9.6 on WordPress.org was still containing old 1.9.5 version. Problem was with synchronization of SVN to package, and it’s now resolved. So, you can now safely upgrade from WP.org to get new version.
