I’ve just committed a new version of Redirection to trunk on the WordPress.org plugin repository. This isn’t available for auto-download just yet as I want to make sure any problems are ironed out. If you’re a willing test subject then I’d very much appreciate any feedback. The code is running on this site and hasn’t melted anything (yet).
There is little visible difference between 2.2 and 2.1.29, but internally there has been a big cleanup. Large amounts of compatibility code has been cleared away, some of it going all the way back to WordPress 2.3. I’ve optimized the database where possible, and hopefully fixed the annoying bug that surfaced when WordPress 3.0 came out (automatically redirecting your home page is not so good!)
Anyway, the changelog for this version is as follows:
- Add Dutch translation
- WordPress 2.9+ only – cleaned up all the old cruft
- Better new-install process
- Upgrades from 1.0 of Redirection no longer supported
- Optimized DB tables
You can grab the new version from SVN:
If you have time there’s a short survey in the plugin that asks a few questions about how you use it. My aim is to simplify it and focus on the things people actually use, and the only way to do that is find out. You can also take part in the survey directly.
