Simple:Press Updated To 4.2.2

Version 4.2.2 of Simple:Press was released today. This is mainly a bugfix release. The main issues corrected in 4.2.2 are:

  • Blog/Topic Linking: Tags now get created correctly/Editing a post now fires the correct hooks/Comment count tag updated
  • bbCode and HTML editors no longer strip links
  • Issues with tag management in admin are corrected
  • Rank names with non alphanumeric characters no linger breaks the display
  • PM Titles with foreign characters no linger freezes the preview
  • Two new blog linking related template tags introduced
  • Group and Forum descriptions can now contain HTML
  • Tags are now ‘clickable’ in IE
  • various other, smaller fixes

We are now turning our attention to the forthcoming release of WordPress version 3.0 which, as I am sure everyone knows, merges WordPress with WordPress MU and brings them together into a single system. We are already readying a release of Simple:Press – 4.3 – to coincide with this new version and will start using it here on our site over the coming week.
