WPML 2.4.3 is a comprehensive stability overhaul and fixes a number of bugs, glitches and notices.
Although there’s no big new feature, this update is highly recommended for everyone. This release fixes some 36 issues. None of these issues was a showstopper, but they needed fixed none-the-less.
- URL preview display bug for some pages
- Non-English characters not converted to equivalent English chars in post slug
- Language switcher CSS positioning on the admin dashboard
- Inconsistent messages about translator actions with WPML’s Translation Editor
- Warning popup messages showing in wrong places
- Compatibility problems with WordPress 3.0.x and 3.1.x (are you still using that?)
- Pagination and search not working together for String Translation
- Gravity Forms integration issues
- Sticky Links not processed correctly for some links
- Stick Links not reverting correctly in some cases
- HTML entities not processed correctly for some fields when coming back from ICanLocalize.com translation
- Fixed the display of the admin language switcher for RTL WordPress administrators
and a bunch of PHP notices in different place…
You’re probably wondering how comes we got so obsessed with hunting down every tiny little issue.
Well, meet Bigul. Bigul is our new QA chief. He’s taking WPML and shaking it like never before. Then, he shakes some more and doesn’t stop until all the bolts and screws are fastened properly.
The changes are applied to all of WPML’s components. Please update WPML core and every addon plugin that you’re using. I hope that you enjoy this new release and the additional stability it brings.
Now that we’ve handled all these issues and we have a solid QA process, we’re getting back to adding more new features. I’ll write much more about it as we’re getting closer to WPML 2.5.0.
