Easy Digital Downloads v1.4.2 has just been released and brings several significant bug fixes and quite a few small enhancements.

The primary bug fixes in this release involve a problem with setting prices above 1000, discount codes set to 100% didn’t work correctly, and some issues with jQuery validation of the checkout field.

In regards to enhancements, we have some really good ones for you.

Ajaxed Checkout

When submitting the checkout form, it is now done with ajax, meaning the page never reloads if there are errors present in the checkout data. This not only makes the experience smoother but also ensures that field data doesn’t get emptied out when there is an error.

New Report Views

The Reports page is one of the most important parts of the plugin and we’ve made it better. You can now view a graph of sales / earnings for Today, This Week. and Last Week.

Multi Option Purchase Mode

This enhancement makes it possible to purchase multiple variations of the same product. There is a new setting above the Variable Price section that lets you enable it. When enabled, the variable prices will be displayed as checkboxes that allow the customer to purchase any and all options. This is exceptionally great, for example, for musicians that wish to sell individual tracks and complete albums.

The complete list of changes is below.
