Sunday, 20-August-2017. New version 4.0.0 of WordPress File Upload plugin has just been released.

This is a major update, which has been under development for 15 months (!!!). The most important change is that user-interface of the plugin has been completely rewritten, so that it works with templates. This means that the upload form can take any shape and appearance. The details of this change, the new architecture, the capabilities and potential will be described in a new separate post that will be published in the next days. For the moment only one basic template is included which generates the same visual result as before. More templates making the plugin look amazing will come in the next releases.

Apart from this, version 4.0.0 introduces several other important enhancements and new features:

  • Added auto-update feature for Pro version. Now new updates of the Pro version can easily be performed following WordPress standard.
  • Migrated to Dropbox API v2 following recommendations of Dropbox.
  • Dropbox transfer process improved in order to be more reliable.
  • File Transfers tab is added in Dashboard in order to monitor Dropbox transfers. All pending Dropbox transfers will be shown there and the administrator will be able to change their order, cancel or reset them.
  • Code improvements in order to protect from hackers trying to use the plugin as email spammer.
  • Filter wfu_file_browser_edit_column-{column} is added so that file viewer column contents can be customized. File links, image thumbnails and many other elements can now be easily added to the file viewer.
  • Added support for Secure FTP (sftp) uploads.
  • Several bug fixes and code improvements.

Separate posts will be published in the next days providing details (and instructions where necessary) about these new features.

You can check more details in the Release Notes of the plugin’s support page.
