We released Edit Flow v0.6.1 yesterday. While the version number suggests a minor upgrade, we’ve put a lot of work into this release and have a number of new features, improvements and fixes that you’ll enjoy.
Note: Edit Flow v0.6 and above requires WordPress 3.0
Custom Post Type Support
It’s a feature many of you have been asking for since Custom Post Types were added in WordPress 3.0. We’re happy to announce that Edit Flow is now custom post type-friendly. You can easily add or remove any Edit Flow feature to your custom post types with a few lines of code. We’ve included some code samples to get you started.
Note: Custom post statuses are now enabled for pages by default as we’ve removed the option from the settings. You can disable them if you’d like with the remove_post_type_support() method.
We’ve heard many of our users across the world are interested in translating Edit Flow into their native languages. With this release, we’ve gone through and cleaned up the plugin to make that easy. If you’re interested in providing a translation for Edit Flow, please get in touch and we’ll gladly include it with the plugin. Pig latin is a language too!
Filtering Users and Usergroups
If you have a large list of users, you now how difficult it can be to scroll through and find the exact person you’re looking for. We’ve added filters and search-as-you-type to user and usergroup lists to make that a little easier.
Emails sent by Edit Flow are now optimized to use queueing for improved performance (and to avoid being flagged as spam).
We’ve also fixed a number of bugs:
- Contributors should not have the ability to publish through Quick Edit
- Proper i18n support (Thanks Beto Frega and others)
- Editorial Comments issue in IE (Thanks asecondwill and James Skaggs)
- Always email admin feature was not working (Thanks nicomollet)
- Notifications for scheduled posts did not include links (Thanks erikajurney)
