Yesterday was a day of updates for a number of great plugins and solutions and if you’ve already an owner then you may have already updated natively through your system.
But if you haven’t (or you’re not a customer yet) here are some of the updates that you missed and perhaps another reason to review these great products that are built by some of our community members here and all-around great people!
Gravity Forms Polls Add-on v1.5:
Gravity Forms Polls Add-On v1.5 is now available via automatic update and the Add-On browser. This is a maintenance release that also improves performance on high traffic sites with a high volume of form entries.
This version implements changes that raised the minimum required version of Gravity Forms to v126.96.36.199. You should make sure you have updated to the latest public release of Gravity Forms, v1.7.5, before applying this update.
WordPress for Android v2.4:
Need to get your WordPress.com or Jetpack notifications on the go? With version 2.4 of WordPress for Android you’ll see all your Notifications right on your Android device.
Excited to see continued development in the mobile space. This update brings a slew of additional features and bug fixes.
Cart66 Goes Cloud:
This wasn’t an update yesterday but it’s an update that I’ve been thinking about as the eCommerce industry around WordPress gets even stiffer.
They’ve essentially come back after being silent for quite some time and they come out of the gate with an ego:
Cart66 Cloud is more than just PCI compliant, it is the most secure solution for WordPress e-commerce available. This article will explain why Cart66 Cloud is more secure and better than the common approaches to security used by popular payment gateways and how you can still use whatever gateway you want while taking advantage of the security that Cart66 Cloud provides.
Brian Krogsgard has a few additional thoughts as well does Chris Lema. Although I like this space and it’s usefulness knows no bounds it doesn’t excite me very much since eCommerce has been around for quite some time. Somebody shake it up a bit why don’t yah?!
Big news that snuck under the radar as BackupBuddy released their titan v4.0, adding a very new and awesome feature:
We think you’ll be most excited about BackupBuddy 4.0′s new individual file view and restore capabilities. It’s really amazing.
With BackupBuddy 4.0, now you can:
- View a listing of files and directories backed up in backup archives (along with size and the date last modified)
- View contents of text-based files (.php, .html, .htaccess, etc.)
- Restore files to their original location (undelete or “roll back” a file)
Finally, for those that care, v1.0 of the Twitter API is dead. RIP. Most of you who work with Twitter regularly knew this was coming a long way off. I have very fond memories as one of my previous startups leveraged it heavily and was eventually acquired.
And that’s that my friends!
