FV Community News 3.2

In the previous months, version 3.1 of the Community News plugin was released.

FV Community News Upgrader

Version 3.0 and later of the Community News plugin will not be backwards compatible with version 2 and earlier.

To help you with the update, I made a little plugin that helps you converting all of the old posts to work with the new version.

FV Community News 3.0 Beta 1

It’s time for the first beta version to be tested! This first beta contains a lot of bug fixes, significant performance increments and other improvements. For more information on all the changes, view the link below.

Depending on how many problems are found during testing, there will be one or two more beta versions before a final release, but I think the plugin is pretty stable at this point. Please try it and tell me what you think about it!

Update: A new release has been uploaded, containing a few critical bug fixes that were discovered.
