Version 2.5 beta 2

Just over a week ago, we released the first beta version of Easy Digital Downloads 2.5. Over the course of the last 8 days, we have identified several bugs that were missed and have also finished several additional new features.

There have been 51 commits since beta 1 from 4 different contributors.

Testing the beta

To ensure that the update to version 2.5 goes smoothly, we need as many people as possible to help test the beta. Every bug that we catch between now and the final release is one lest problem for live sites.

Please do not test this beta on a live site. Use a staging or development site.

The latest version of the beta may be downloaded from GitHub.

Important changes

The biggest change in beta 2 is the new sub sections in settings tabs. These allow for far better organization of settings, as can be seen in the screenshot below:

A lot of time was also spent finalizing the new EDD_Payment class. While not 100% ready, it is closer to being completely backwards compatible and stable. We will write up a post sometime next week detailing how it can be used.

At this time we are aiming to release 2.5 on January 4, 2016. Between now and then, we need as many people as possible to help test the beta version to ensure we get as many bugs fixed before release as we can.

Have given it a cursory run through, no errors reported in debug.log which is nice for a beta 🙂

I found maybe a problem. Downloads > Settings > Styles: Default Button Colour has no options; this is on a site in a multisite testbed with the stable version already installed. I deactivated stable, then activated beta.

Since you’re separating the settings tabs into subsections, how about also separating the Extensions tab into subsections?



Thanks for the report. I believe we’ve got that resolved.

The extensions tab will be split into sections as well but it’s being done in steps as we gradually update all the extensions.
