Easy Digital Downloads v1.4.1 has been released today, and it has a lot of really great changes and improvements.

NOTE: If you use the PayPal Pro / Express extension, you must upgrade it to v1.3 in order to fully use Easy Digital Downloads v1.4.1. If you do not upgrade, discount codes will not work.

The most significant changes made in this release have to do with the discount and tax systems behind the scenes. We’ve been busy dramatically improving the infrastructure of both systems so that we can introduce some really, really cool new features in the upcoming releases. One of the changes that will be most noticeable is the Discount field on the checkout screen. you might notice that there is no longer a “Apply Discount” link; this is because discounts are automatically applied as soon as the customer focuses out of the discount field. This should significantly improve the customer’s checkout experience, especially with the added visual elements we’ve added to the checkout screen that show the amount of the discount just above the cart total.
