Removed features

A couple of features have been removed. Hopefully no one will miss these features.

  • Quicktime Embed option for m4a audio removed due to security concerns with Quicktime.
  • SWF embed support dropped. We do not believe anyone was using this option.


This is beta software and should be treated as such. Don’t forget to backup before your start!

Note: PowerPress will be detected as version 6.3.3 within the WordPress plugin management pages. This is not an error, we cannot implement the official version number without the beta becoming a release. You should see the beta version at the bottom of the PowerPress settings pages to confirm that you have the beta version installed.
