5.3.6 and Pro 2.3 Released

Posted on February 27, 2013

It’s been just over a month that we’ve released an update, which by our standards is longer than usual! Aside from fixing various bugs that we were made aware of in the meantime, this update mainly focuses on making some core code improvements to allow us to add more powerful features to both free and Pro plugins.

The main reason for this focus is because we’ve been working on a pretty exciting Pro feature – Multiple Bookings – which is now in the form of a working alpha (meaning not ‘officially’ a pro feature yet) and is available for use in the latest Pro update (you need to update to EM 5.3.6 as well). You can see some preliminary documentation to help you activate this new feature as well as a working demo to see it in action.

We’re already starting work on the next update, which will be dedicated to polishing off this new feature, tying up some more loose ends as well as taking some time to improve some aspects of integration with MultiSite (mostly revolving around allowing/restricting certain settings available to blog admins).

We look forward to the coming weeks and the exciting things they have in store whilst we move onto the next update!
