Yup, three years ago to this date Easy Updates Manager was released on the WordPress.org Plugin Directory. It is hard to believe that it has been that long since it was released.
Thank you to all the people who download and use Easy Updates Manager. The fact that Easy Updates Manager has over 90,000+ active installs, and is only a few thousands downloads away from passing 400,000 downloads is INSANE! I never would have imagined that a fun little coding project would turn into a popular plugin for WordPress.
On that note, have a great October 3! And I hope to be writing another post very similar to this one in a year’s time.
Easy Updates Manager 6.1.5 has been released today to fix a bug causing people to not be able to use the disable/enable automatic updates quick links in the plugin and theme tabs. If you are using version 6.1.0 or below this bug will not affected you. Although, if you are using Easy Updates Manager 6.1.1 or 6.1.3 it is strongly advised that you update to 6.1.5.
Easy Updates Manager 6.1.0 is out and available for download on wordpress.org. 6.1.0 includes filters for logs, and a greatly requested setting to allow you to change the email that notifications are sent to. Below is a quick 2 minute video overviewing the new features in Easy Updates Manager 6.1.0. Enjoy!
This came as a surprise to the whole Easy Updates Manager team. None of us were in anyway involved with making this post. Nonetheless it is a very nice surprise and hopefully will help grow Easy Updates Manager.
