Easy Digital Downloads version 1.0.9 has been released and is ready for your upgrades. This version brings a lot of minor bug fixes and a couple of really great new features

Many of the new features are primarily for developers, but there is one major feature that everyone will love: variable-price-option-specific download files.

The big thing that has changed with this version is the ability to set download source files as only being available to certain price options. You can now setup multiple price options for a product, and then select download files for each price, so if a user purchases price option one, they get file X and Y, but if they purchase price option two, they get file W and Z. See the screenshot below for more info:

Complete Change Log

* Updated the purchase/download history short codes to only show files for the price options the user has purchased
* Fixed a bug with the file upload meta box fields
* Added the ability to register custom payment method icons

* Added an option in Settings > Misc to define the expiration length for download links – default is 24 hours
* Updated the &391;purchase_link] short code in the Download Configuration meta box to reflect the chosen button color
* Updated the “Short Code” column in the list table to include the correct button color option
* Added a new filter, edd_download_file_url_args, for changing the arguments passed to the function that generages download URLs
* Fixed a bug with the EDD_READ_FILE_MODE constant
* Added a new filter to allow developers to change the redirect URL for the edd_login form

    Fantastic set of feature additions! Especially the variable downloads linked to variable pricing! I’ve been waiting for this one, and I’m so happy to see it. Keep up the great work as always, Pippin.
