If you’re familiar with WordPress, you’ve probably heard the term “GPL license” applied to plugins or themes. Kinsta published a great overview of the GPL license this week and how it affects WordPress if you’re interested in learning more.
New or Updated Plugins & Themes
- WP eCommerce version 3.11 was just released, which adds Amazon Payments into the plugin and greatly improves internationalization. It also includes a lot of new hooks for developers to extend the plugin.
Along with this release, WP eCommerce has also updated their pricing and licensing structure to adopt the very comment “one year of support and updates” model.
Restrict Content Pro has been updated to version 2.4, which adds a member approval workflow and support for 2Checkout payments.
