Hellooo beta tester! We are eager to have you beta test our next release!
If everything goes as planned, PowerPress 5.0 will be released on Tuesday, Aug. 27, 2013.
New PowerPress Features
Version 5.0 includes a number of new features and updates based on the recent features added to WordPress 3.6. New features include:
- Taxonomy Podcasting
- Post Type Podcasting
- MediaElement.js HTML5 Media Player (requires WordPress 3.6+)
- iTunes and RSS image settings moved to “Artwork” tab
- Simple Mode (for beta release 2)
- Plus a number of improvements and bug fixes
Note on Post Type Podcasting
If you enable this feature as well as the Podcast Channels feature, the ability for Podcast Channels to apply to custom post types is disabled. The channels from that point on will only apply to the default post type “post.” If you never configured specific post types with your podcast channels, then you have nothing to worry about.
This is beta software and should be treated as such. Don’t forget to backup before your start!
Requirements and Download
PowerPress 5.0 requires WordPress version 3.0 or newer. WordPress 3.6 is recommended.
PowerPress 5.0-beta2 released on Aug. 23, 2013.
Note: PowerPress will be detected as version 4.0.9 within the WordPress plugin management pages. This is not an error, we cannot increment the official version number without the beta becoming a release. You should see 5.0 beta2 at the bottom of the PowerPress settings pages to confirm that you have the beta version installed.
Please email (powerpress [at] rawvoice dot com) to report bugs. Attachments, screenshots and code changes are welcome. If you do screen capturing, please use a service such as Google Drive to upload and share the video.
Again, thank you for checking out the new 5.0 version of PowerPress!
