We’re ready with a new version of WPML, but just for brave testers. This new release adds support for WordPress custom post types.
Until now, you could have pages, posts, tags and categories. And that’s it. Anything else would be a hack using custom fields.
WordPress 3.0 opens great possibilities for using as a content management system. Much of it, due to the new custom types and taxonomy. And, WPML 1.7.8 supports that.
So, without further delay, here is the release:
This version look much like previous versions, but internal changes are large. Since WordPress has moved to flexible post and taxonomies, WPML had to follow.
- All custom types are multilingual.
- >Commercial support for developers, directly by WPML developers.
- Many bug fixes, including an auto-heal function, in case your site had broken translations before.
To Test with WordPress 3.0
If you’re testing this version with WordPress 3.0, we recommend using a staging site. Don’t update a live site to WordPress 3.0 before testing in a safe environment.
Right now, there are no known issues or open bugs. Please report how it’s going for you (for better or worse) so that we can come out with the official release early next week.
