Version 1.2.2 has just been released and with it we have delivered a dramatically improved user interface for setting up and configuring download products.
Previously, there was an excess of options that often confused users and made them not quite sure how to properly setup the downloadable product. We have significantly simplified and improved the UI and the available options to make things easier, more streamlined, and much prettier to look at.
The new UI is largely due to the excellent work done by Spencer Finnell, our most recent contributing developer, who has also just joined us as an official contributor to Easy Digital Downloads. With his exquisite attention to detail and excellent developmnent practices, Spencer was able to dramatically improve the UI that has been around since the very first version of the plugin.
Other changes in v1.2.2 include new language files for Arabic speakers, a new Dashboard Earnings widget, several significant bug fixes, a fix for a security flaw, and many other minor bug fixes.
Another important note, though one that actually relates to v1.2.1, is the new templating system available for short codes. There are template files located in includes/templates that you cn copy to a folder named edd_templates in your theme in order to customize the short code output for [downloads], [purchase_history], [download_history], and [download_cart]. These template files make it dramatically easier to adapt Easy Digital Downloads to the specific needs of your site.
